Constitution 

NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the West Chowan Baptist Association of 
North Carolina. 



MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of Messengers elected by the churches connected 



12 



with this body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said churches, together 
with the officers of this Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. Each 
church of one hundred members and under shall be entitled to two Messengers, and 
for each additional one hundred members, an additional Messenger, provided that no 
church shall have more than ten messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage, and 
enlist its membership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation, for the promotion 
of the entire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel of our Lord and 
Saviour Jesus Christ might be proclaimed with greater power and effectiveness in our 
Association, our State and Nation, aqd unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sovereignty 
or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor 
a court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend measures of usefulness 
for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. There shall be full recognition 
of the autonomy of the local church and there shall be full recognition of the autonomy 
of the Association. However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence 
of the Association, it justly claims the very highest consideration and regard for 
itself, its objects and its recommendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving the design, objects and 
principles of this Association, and holding the same doctrines and ordinances, may 
be admitted into fellowship upon two-thirds vote of the messengers. All applications 
shall be referred to theMembership Committee for study. Church desiring membership 
should give notice by making application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relation with any church that con- 
sistently refuses to support the design, objects and principles of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association. Any irregularities which are reported shall be referred to the 
Membership Committee who will report their findings to the next Associational 
meeting. The relationship may be dissolved by a two-thirds vote of the messengers 
one year after irregularities have been brought to the attention of the Association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church shall be requested to contribute a percentage of its gifts, 
or so much per resident member for defraying the expenses of the Association and 
for direction of the promotional, education and missionary work of the Association. 
This percentage or amount shall be sent to the Associational Treasurer monthly by 
each church Treasurer. 

Article 8. Every church will send to every annual session of the Association a 
Letter on the form adopted by the Association with such additional information as it

REPORT OF THE GENERAL BOARD 

The General Board of the West Chowan Baptist Association met four times during 
the past year at the Ahoskie First Baptist Church: December 28, 1970; March 29, 1971; 
June 28, 1971 and September 27, 1971. Because of the small attendance at the June 
meeting, the chairman declared that there was no quorum, and that no business could 
be transacted. 

There were also four meetings of the Executive Committee, which kept a record 
of their proceedings, when they discussed the work of the Association, and approved 
some recommendations to be made to the General Board. 

At the December meeting, the officers of the Association were elected officers 
of the General Board: Chairman, Russell Johnson, Jr.; Vice-chairman, Billy T. Mobley; 
Secretary, L. Thad Prevatte. New pastors were recognized, and reports were received 
from the Association's organizations and committees. The following were elected 
members- at- large, of the Executive Committee: Dalphon Thompson of Northampton 
County; Daniel M. Spell of Hertford County; Ulrich Mizelle of Bertie County. The 
chairman instructed the chairmen of committees to set the dates when they would 
meet with their committees before the next General Board Meeting. 

In the March meeting, reports were received from the following committees: Mis- 
sions, Education and Promotion, Finance and Stewardship, Survey and Study, and Evan- 
gelism. Ernest Poston gave a report of the Vacation Bible School Clinic held at the 
Colerain Church. 

Reports of our work were also given at the September meeting, including a pro- 
posed Budget for 1972 by the chairman of the Stewardship and Finance Committee. 
The Parliamentarian announced a proposed constitutional change which had been dis- 
cussed by the Executive Committee. Henry W. Stough was elected to do the work of 
the Clerk until the annual session, and Bennie Pledger announced that he had been 
asked to serve out the unexpired term on the General Board of the Baptist State Con- 
vention to take the place of Tom M. Jones who had moved away from the Associa- 
tion. 

The date of the next General Board Meeting was set for Monday, December 13th, 
1971. 



Respectfully submitted,

RECOMMENDATIONS:

toward financing the Association's Program for 1972. 

2. We recommend that the Association make an application for $1,000.00 to the 
Baptist State Convention for the supplement to the salary. It is understood however 
that in any event the salary will be the total given. 

Respectfully submitted, 
- , Lewis H. Sutton, Chairman 

18. The Moderator recognized the Director of Associational Work, Rev. Henry W. 
Stough, who made the following explanations and recommendations: (1), the "Minutes" 
of the Association Meeting will be distributed on the plan of Number 5, of "Special 
Notices" printed after the "Constitution." He said that he hoped that the "Minutes" 
would be sent to the churches in December. (2), he stressed the "World Missions 
Conferences" as explained in the Report of the Missions Committee; (3), he urged 
every church to participate in the WIN Program of Evangelism next year, and (4) there 
are opportunities for personal witnessing after the "Real Life Conferences." He also 
stated that there is a great need for a serious study of the needs of our churches and 
the Association, and how the larger and stronger churches can help the smaller church- 
es. He pointed out that in the schedule of future Annual Sessions, we shall meet with 
churches that are having anniversaries. He called attention to the "Digest of Church 
Letters" in the Book of Reports, and urged every church to give at least $1.25 per 
resident member to support the Association's work. He then made a motion that the 
Calendar for 1972, the Schedule of Association Meetings, the Digest of Church Let- 
ters, the reports of the Organization and the committees of the General Board be 
adopted. The motion was carried. 

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF ASSOCIATIONAL 

WORK 

During this past year, there have been many activities that have claimed our at- 
tention, including the promotion of our Associational Work, and helping the churches 
in their ministry to do the Lord's work in the areas where they are. Planning the work 
with the Executive Committee and the General Board, we have sought to. strengthen 
the work of the churches by planning those activities which would be helpful, such 
as the Bible Conferences, School of Music, helping to ordain deacons and encourag- 
ing a fellowship among the churches. We preached somewhere nearly every Sunday 
and on Sundays when we did not have an appointment, we visited in other churches 
and helped whenever we could. 

Outside the Association we helped in two "World Missions Conferences" (in the 
South Roanoke and the Wilmington Associations), and attended other conferences and 
conventions which were helpful, as the State and Southern Conventions, Home Mis- 
sion Week at Ridgecrest, the Associational Missionaries' Conference in Fruitland, 
and the State Evangelism Conference. 

Preparations are being made for several important projects in the coming year: 
(1), the World Missions Conferences during the weeks of March 12-17 and 19-24; (2), 
the new WIN Program of Evangelism in every church under the leadership of the Evan- 
gelism Committee; (3), the "Real Life Conferences" under the leadership of the 
Sunday School Leadership, and (4), a serious study of the needs of our churches and 
how we can help. 

We have met with many committees and groups, mailed out nearly 12,000 copies 
of THE WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST Bulletin; written many letters and cards, had many 



21 



personal conferences with church leaders, and drove over 25,000 miles to serve you 
and do the work of the Lord. 

Many of our churches have some serious problems, such as a declining com- 
munity and membership; difficulty in getting and training leadership; combatting 
worldliness and indifference; and coping with the moral, social, and spiritual prob- 
lems of the day. We need to love one another more, pray for one another, and help 
one another in every way possible in the name of the Lord who loved us, and gave 
Himself for us!

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL DEPARTMENT 

Your Associational Sunday School Department is committed to the task of helping 
our churches to reach the largest number of people possible and to teach them ef- 
fectively as possible, the will of God as revealed in the Bible. In keeping with this 
task, our emphasis in the past year has been on both outreach and teaching improve- 
ment. 

Seven workers from our Association attended the State Vacation Bible School 
Clinic at Wingate College in January and later led conferences at our Associational 
Clinic at Colerain in March, which was attended by 157 people from 33 churches. In 
February, 10 representatives from our Association participated in a Leadership Readi- 
ness Conference at Edenton. A four-day Bible Conference was held in September at 
the Ahoskie First Baptist Church when Dr. Nathan C. Brooks, Director of the Division 
of Church Programs ot the Baptist State Convention taught "The Book of Romans," 
and Rev. Robert E. Gray, pastor of the Edenton Baptist Church taught "The Book of 
Hosea." AH who attended received a real blessing in an understanding of the mes- 
sages of these two books of the Bible. 

Projects scheduled by your Sunday School Department for next year are: An Asso- 
ciational Vacation Bible School Clinic on April 4th at the Murfreesboro Baptist Church; 
An Associational "Real Life" Conference, April 17th, 18th, and 20th; and possibly 
another Bible Conference, September 11-14. Places and future plans will be announced 
later. 

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the Sunday Schools of our Association, 
and wish to express our appreciation to all volunteer workers from our churches who 
so ably assisted in this work and who contributed greatly to its effectiveness. We 
also appreciate the response of the officers and teachers of our Sunday Schools to 
the training opportunities offered, and hope that through the combined efforts of us 
all, that some measure of progress has been made in the improvement of the "Bible 
Teaching Program", of our churches.

REPORT OF THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT 

Music has such an important part in the worship services of our churches that 
many of our people are anxious to know more about music, and how to sing and praise 
the Lord with their voices, as well as to play instruments in our churches. This year 
has been marked by a School of Music, and a Choir and Hymn Playing Festival. 

On October 19, 1970 at the Woodland Baptist Church, five of our churches partici- 
pated in the Piano-Organ Playing Festival. They were: Ahoskie First, Bethlehem, 
Christian Harbor, Creech Memorial and Powellsville. This has been most inspiration- 
al to all of us throughout the year. We had two Hymn- Playing Concerts with even more 
churches participating. 

22 



Ahoskie First and Union Churches took choirs to the Regional Choir Festival held 
in Elizabeth City last February. 

The SCHOOL OF MUSIC in August was a delightful experience for all of us. 
Roberts Chapel was the host church. There were eleven churches represented with a 
total enrollment of 54 and an average attendance of 49. Bob Dills led a class for all 
choir members, William R, Raynor taught the Piano- and- Organ Playing class, and 
Kenneth Hill of Scotland Neck's First Baptist Church taught a class for choir direc- 
tors. This was a great blessing to all of us.

REPORT ON THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

Fifty-two of the sixty churches of our Association responded in the spirit of 
Christian compassion to the very real needs of "service" patients (persons who 
cannot pay the total costs), at Baptist Hospital in Winston- Salem. Through their gifts 
to the Mother's Day Offering, these churches provided $5,082.98 for medical care 
for "service patients." Considering the free services provided for the patients by 
hospital personnel, our Mother's Day Offerings made it possible for the Hospital to 
provide about $50,000 worth of medical care and services during the year. 

But, Baptist Hospital still has many more service patients than all the Mother' s 
Day Offerings are paying for. Healing was a vital part of the ministry of Jesus of 
Nazareth. As His disciples, may we extend the healing arm of North Carolina Baptist 
Churches through increased giving to the Mother's Day Offering! We hope that the 
fifty- two churches who gave this year will give even more next year, and that the 
eight other churches will begin giving "as the Lord has prospered" them. Call on your 
Hospital Representative for assistance or information at any time.

Baptist Hospital Representative 

REPORT OF THE CHURCH TRAINING DEPARTMENT 

Church Training is becoming more of a "must" than ever before in the life of 
our churches. We have many new ideals, new materials, and a new seriousness to 
our needs for Christian Training are coming to us through our Church Training Depart- 
ment. 

We have had a normal year in Church Training in our Association, and more of 
our churches are becoming aware of a need of a training program. 

We had two churches represented in the Association and the Region Tournaments' 
"Scripture Drills". They were Carroll Mizelle, Amy White and Tim White from the 
Askewville Church; Carol Williams, Cathy Asbell, and Monden Simpson from the 
Greens Cross Church. The three winners in the Association and Region Tournaments, 
went on to win out in the State Tournaments at the North Carolina Baptist Assembly 
at Ft. Caswell. 

"Youth Night" was well- attended by both Adults and Young People, and the 
program was planned and directed toward the youth and their needs. Many made 
commitments to the Lord at the close of the service. 

We have 19 churches reporting a "Training Program" with an enrollment of 1,054. 
78 members of our churches attended the Church Training Conferences at our Baptist 
Assembly at Ft. Caswell this summer. We urge every church member to study and 
"stay- up- to- date" with the current training materials for you and your church. Tnere

are several types of programs which can be used in your church, for your adults; and of 
course, many program helps for your young people. 

Our coming important meetings are "M" Night on December 6th at the Cash ie 
Church, and "Youth Night" on March 18th at the Mt. Tabor Church. 

Thank you for your support, assistance and help during the past year, and we want 
to help you to have an effective "Church Training Program" in your church. There are 
three areas: ''New Member Orientation Training" "Church Member Training" and 
"Church Leadership Training". Classes in these areas can be planned on Sunday night, 
or at any other time during the week to suit your convenience. If we do not train our 
leaders and our members, they will not be trained to serve effectively and fruitfully.

Church Training Department 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON LIBRARIES 

These are important days in the history of the Church Library Ministry, for there 
are many new ideas, new materials, and new services coming through the Church 
Library Department of the Sunday School Board. New dedication on the part of library 
personnel and pastors is needed to carry the ministry to each individual and all or- 
ganizations of the church, in order to reach those outside the church family. 

We were represented at the Area Sunday School Convention held in Edenton on 
September 13th. Our annual business meeting was held in Murfreesboro with the 
present officers re-nominated for the coming year. 

There are twenty-three churches reporting library services. Some of the churches 
reported libraries open for their Vacation Bible Schools; a few were open for the 
summer months, and reading clubs were held by some. We-welcome a new library 
to our group at Ashley's Grove. 

If we can be of service to you, please let us know.

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD DEPARTMENT 

The work of the Brotherhood is devoted entirely to missions now, with stress being 
made on "Mission Study" and "Mission Activities", and this is carried on in the 
work of the Crusaders, Pioneers and Royal Ambassadors in the boys' work. In 18 of 
our churches we now have different phases of our Brotherhood work, with 7 Senior Bap- 
tist Mens' Groups; 11 Baptist Mens* Groups; 3 Baptist Young Mens' Groups; 10 
Pioneer Groups (ages 12-17); and 11 Crusader Groups (ages 6-11). The reported en- 
rollment is 631, a gain over the 441 reported last year. 

Every church should have a Brotherhood Director, for this is a beginning whereby 
other groups can be started, either with the men or the boys. Your Associational 
Brotherhood Officers are ready to come to your church and explain the work of the 
Brotherhood, or a "Baptist Mens' Group" is willing to come to your church and demon- 
strate how the work is carried on. Let us know when we can help. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 



All Christians need to thank God for the renewed interest among youth in evan- 
gelism. This was evident during the Youth Evangelism Night this past February 2nd 
when almost 20,000 youth and adults overflowed the Greensboro Coliseum and War 
Memorial Auditorium. Several busloads and carloads went from our West Chowan 
Association to attend the service. 1,519 decisions were made by the young people 
attending this rally, and many youth in churches across our state are now involved 
in witnessing for Christ in unique ways. The bus driver of one of the buses from our 
Association was led to Christ by some of our young people on the way back from 
Greensboro! 

There is tremendous interest in North Carolina and the entire Southern Baptist 
Convention in the new WIN materials on "lay witnessing" and the one week "Lay 
Evangelism Schools". Over 25 Associations have already started specific planning 
toward a one week "Lay Evangelism School" in their area. The first "Lay Evangelism 
School" sponsored by the Division of Evangelism will be November 1-7 in the Meck- 
lenburg Association. Jesus reminded all Christian laymen of our task in Luke 24:48 - 
"And ye are witnesses of these things.'* Thousands of laymen and youth will respond 
if they are properly challenged and trained. 

The Statewide Evangelism Conference will be February 7- 9, 1972 at the Cumberland 
County Memorial Auditorium in Fayetteville. The next Statewide Youth Evangelism 
will be on Friday evening, August 18, 1972 at the Greensboro Coliseum. 

Remember to pray earnestly for the non- Christians in North Carolina and around 
the world that through our efforts together the Holy Spirit may lead many persons to 
commit their lives to Jesus Christ. We will plan to have an emphasis on evangelism 
in 1972, using the WIN materials which are written to help our local churches to visit 
and win the lost, 

, Respectfully submitted, 
. Tom M. Jones, Chairman, 

Committee on Evangelism 

REPORT OF THE MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

During the year of 1971 the Missions Committee has encouraged the churches of 
the West Chowan Association to support Community Missions, Association Missions, 
State Missions, Home Missions and Foreign Missions with their gifts, prayers and 
activities. It is encouraging to know that missions work done by churches, church 
groups, and individuals in our Hospitals, Prisons, Rest Homes, Nursing Homes and 
elsewhere has been good and rewarding. 

The committee has been trying to establish a Christian ministry at the jail in 
Winton, but it has not materialized yet. If this effort is successful, many people 
should benefit from it. Pray for the committee in this important task. 

The largest task for the committee this year has been the planning for the WORLD 
MISSIONS CONFERENCES in March 1972. All churches are urged to participate in 
this mission effort, and at this time forty- two churches have already voted to take 
part in this great two weeks of missionary education. It is hoped that every church 
will cooperate in this opportunity to hear the Foreign, Home, State and Associational 
Missionaries. Each church will hear seven different missionaries during this period 
from Sunday morning through the following Friday Night. 

The World Missions Conferences will be held March 12-17 and 19-24, 1972, and 
during the first week of March 12-17, the churches in Bertie County and nearby Hert- 
ford County willhavetheir schools. Duringthesecond week, March 19-24, the churches 
of Northampton and the remaining Hertford County churches will have their con- 
ferences. This year there will be no study period of a mission book, but the entire 
time will be given to the missionary to speak, and to have a time for discussion. 



25 



J 



The Missions Committee is working out the schedule according to the number 
of churches that participate. Since there will be some expenses in transportation of 
the missionaries to our Association, every church is asked to take an offering each 
night for these expenses, but if a church would rather give a lump sum from the 
treasury, the suggested amount is $80.00. Each church is also asked to provide lodging 
and meals for their one guest missionary, and to provide transportation to his or her 
speaking engagements. 

Plans are being made for Mission Rallies each of the two Sunday afternoons when 
there will be a "Mission Fair", and an opportunity to greet each missionary, and to 
see some displays from the mission field. There will also be morning meetings on 
Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week in different churches so that all can 
hear different missionaries speak. 

The Missions Committee wishes to thank all of you for your co-operation and 
prayers in this great work of missions. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Harvey L. Coppedge, Chairman, 
Missions Committee 

REPORT ON THE CHILDRENS' HOMES 

One of the vital programs of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and one 
long supported and beloved of our people is the Baptist Children's Homes. We in 
Eastern North Carolina have a special interest in the Eastern area home, Kennedy 
Home, located near Kinston. This and the other homes scattered from East to West 
are presently in a very forward-looking program of expansion for better serving youth 
and homes of our state. Funds from the Cooperative Program assist in this important 
work, but the Homes are still dependent on individual gifts for much of the Work of 
Development (expansion of physical facilities, etc.) The Homes also still must have 
the support of our churches in direct gifts (through the Thanksgiving Offering or 
budgeted items) to carry on the regular operational work, 

Ot the 60 churches in the West Chowan Association, 56 made contributions to- 
taling $10,832 during the last Associational year. Looking toward the new year, we 
could wish for lOO^o support from our churches along with increased giving to this ^ 
most worthy cause. Your Children's Homes Representative will write to each church 
in the Association in early November to call attention to the vital needs of our Homes. 
Let me urge you, the messengers to the annual Association Meeting, to encourage 
your church in liberal support of this vital program of our State Convention. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rowland S, Pruette, Representative, 

Baptist Children's Homes 

REPORT OF THE AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

Baptists believe in and affirm the right of the individual to read and interpret the 
Scriptures for himself. But how is an individual to do this if he cannot secure the 
Scriptures in his own language? The American Bible Society was founded for the 
purpose of providing Scriptures in every language; it is our missionary agency for 
translating, publishing and distributing God's Word around the world. 

The Society has made significant advances in distributing the Word of God. Many 
people are reading the Scriptures - yet millions still lack their first copy. West 
Chowan Baptists are privileged to have a part in assisting these millions who have 
never heard or read the Bible. November 14 has been designated as "American Bible

Conway Baptist Church. 

A BRIEF HISTORY OF CONWAY BAPTIST CHURCH 

(Compiled with the Aid of Mrs. Linwood Woodard, 
Sec. to the Clerk of Conway Baptist Church.) 

In the year of 1905, the village of Conway had grown in proportions to necessitate 
the organization of a Baptist Church. Many of the citizens were members and attended 
services at the Baptist Churches of the surrounding communities, namely, Robert's 
Chapel, Potecasi, Murfreesboro, and Meherrin. In fact, we are often referred to as the 
daughter of Robert's Chapel. These good citizens, feeling that God would bless their 
efforts, decided that since so many of the Baptist belief resided in and around the 
Conway Community, that a place of worship should be provided. 

On August 26th, 1905, thirty men and three women met in the small public school 
building, which was located on the present church lot, to consider the wisdom of 
organizing a Baptist church. After a committee had canvassed the community and 
reported a favorable reaction of 108 people, who were willing to become members 
of the new church, plans were made for a building to be erected on land donated by 
Mr. Abner Lassiter, grandfather of the present Abner P. Lassiter. 

On October 9, 1905, Reverends C.W. Scarboro, D. Cale, A.T. Howell and Rufus 
White aided in the organization of Conway Baptist Church. 



■ y 



Rev. Cale was elected Moderator and Mr. J.W. Martin was selected as secretary. 
After an appropriate opening of praising and thanking God, 76 people presented let- 
ters and became Charter Members of the church. Dr. Ransome Kelly White was 13 
years of age at that time and is believed to be among the few living Charter members 
at this date. The others, to our knowledge, who are living and members of this church 
are Mr. Magnus Jones and Miss Josephine Jones. 

Two years after the church was organized, the building was completed and four 
years later was dedicated under the leadership of Rev. Jesse McCarter, the first 
pastor. Rev. C.W, Scarboro preached the sermon of dedication and Dr. W.F. Poteat 
of Wake Forest College delivered the address. 

During the following years, God blessed the efforts of this church, and the work 
progressed and grew under the leadership of eight pastors, when Rev. Lonnie Sassei 
accepted the call in the year of 1941. It was under his guidance and leadership that 
a new church building was begun in 1949 and completed the following year. In three 
short years, the membership dedicated the present house of worship with Dr. F.D. 
Mixon, President of Chowan College delivering the message. A complete history was 
read by R, Jennings White and everyone present realized the growth and service 
of a graded Sunday School of 400 members and a church membership of 600, including 
a full graded W.M.U. with four auxiliaries. Our youth gained great benefit and blessing 
from a full graded Training Union from which a number of leaders later became adult 
servants in God's work. 

Before Rev. Sasser resigned, he led the church in the project of purchasing a lot 
and erecting an adequate parsonage. Our next pastor,. Rev. Donald J. Dunlap, was 
the first occupant. Under his leadership, the church set forth a venture in adopting 
a new program which formulated and divided responsibilities. After three years with 
us. Rev. Dunlap resigned and Rev. Russell L.Wimmer began his ministry emphasizing 
Schools of Missions added to the program of Christian Education. Rev. Walter S. 
Jones followed Rev. Wimmer as our shepherd and at present the church is benefiting 
from the efforts of this dedicated Servant of God. 

This church is proud to have produced and ordained three men to serve as minis- 
ters: R. Kelly White, Paul Sykes, and Bennie Pledger. Mr. Sykes branched off in the 
field of business. Dr. White has been outstanding in the Southern Baptist Convention 
and has given his life to the ministry. Rev. Bennie Pledger is serving as pastor of 
Colerain Baptist Church and is contributing valuable service to the West Chowan y 
Association. In 1969, this church licensed Grady Nicolas Martin to Gospel ministry. 
Two laymen have served in the state legislature, R. Jennings White, deceased, and 
J. Raynor Woodard. Four doctors have been produced from this church, namely. Dr. 
Joseph A, Fleetwood, Jr., Dr. Vernell Vick, Dr. Bernard Vick. and Dr. J.C. Parke. At 
present, the church is unique and unusual in having in its membership, the present 
officers of the Association, Mrs. R. Jennings White, Director of W.M.U. and Russell 
H. Johnson, Jr., Moderator of West Chowan Association. 

It is impossible to list the names of the many valuable and consecrated men and 
women who have given service under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, however, we 
would list the pastors who have served since 1905: Reverends Jesse McCarter, W.B. 
Woff, Jesse Blalock, J.W. Downey, A.W.H. Jones, W.R, Burrell, J.C. Owen, J.H. Bunn, 
Lx)nnie Sasser, Donald J. Dunlap, Russell L. Wimmer and Walter S. Jones. 

The Church is thankful for their influence and leadership and in this time of a 
troubled world, we pray that Conway Baptist Church will give greater service to God.

have graciously decided that they would like to make contribution that they feel would

They desire to donate to this Association a one acre lot at Ridgecrest, N.C. on a 
mountain overlooking Montreat. They wish to donate this property to the West Chowan 
Baptist Association with the understanding that in the future this Association will 
erect on this property a cottage that will house young and old at Ridgecrest for spir- 
itual training and meditation. They ask that this Association vote to accept their 
gift and that the Association erect a suitable cottage to house representatives of this 
Association that go to Ridgecrest. They have been thinking about this for some time. 
They simply hope that this Association will accept this gift in the same manner that 
they give it. 

42. The Moderator asked for a motion that the generous gift be accepted. Mr. 
Daniel Spell made the motion to accept the gift and it was seconded by Rev. Ernest 
Poston. The Motion was passed unanimously by a standing vote.

"The specific objective of the Mission Advance Revival is to "inspire, encourage, 
and enlist" the members of Baptist churches throughout the state in a re - examina- 
tion of stewardship. What does such a re- examination mean to the Baptists of the West 
Chowan Baptist Association? Let's take a look at our record: The annual increase 
in the cost of living for each of us over the last several years. With this fact in mind, 
note: 15 of the 60 churches in our Association gave fewer dollars for world missions 
through co-operative program causes in 1970 than this same church gave in 1966. 
Sixteen churches gave fewer dollars for all mission expenditures in 1970 than those 
same churches gave in 1966! Or, to bring it down to a lower manageable personal 
level, the per capita giving of Baptists in the West Chowan to co-operative program 
causes in 1970 was approximately $5.90 - less than the cost of three cartons of 
cigarettes, three visits to the golf course (if you pay green fees), or the average visit 
to your hair stylist! How serious are we about the world mission of the Church of 
Jesus Christ?" Dr. Whitaker ended in a word of prayer.

HISTORY OF CAPEHARTS BAPTIST CHURCH 

Capeharts Baptist Church, located in Whites Township, Bertie County, was or- 
ganized and constituted on Friday, December 10, 1824, with seventy-four charter 
members who had taken letters of dismission from the Wiccacon and Cashie Baptist 
churches. Of these seventy-four, 64 were white; 10, colored. The constituting pres- 
bytery consisted of Elders A. Biggs, Reuben Lawrence, and William I. Newbem. Elder 
Lawrence was called as pastor and Mr. Charles Cobb was elected Church Clerk. 

Capeharts Church voted to petition the Bertie Union and the Chowan Baptist Asso- 
ciation tor membership in these bodies in 1825. In that same year she licensed her 
first native son to preach the Gospel, granting to William W. Pierce authority to preach 
"in the bounds of this church and the neighboring churches if he thinks proper."

The first missionary society was formed in 1847. As further expression of her 
missionary concern, Capeharts voted in 1849 to support a minister to travel and 
preach within the bounds of the association. In that same year it was decided to 
abolish the old constitution, with the Clerk instructed to draw up a new one in ac- 
cordance with the Confession of Faith adopted by the Chowan Baptist Association in 
May 1849. Mention of the first Sabbath School is recorded in the Minutes of Church 
Conference for June 1870. 

In addition to the original meeting house, the congregation has occupied two other 
houses of worship throughout the years. Thefirst was completed and occupied in 1870. 
The present structure was completed and dedicated in 1918. A Sunday School annex 
was built in 1927, with a wing added to this structure in 1964. The decision to enter 
into a full-time program of ministry in 1953 necessitated the construction of a par- 
sonage. This* structure was completed in record time, with the new pastor and his 
family moving into the building in November 1953.

office:

WOMEN'S MISSIONARY UNION REPORT 



The Aulander Church was hostess to the W.M.U. Association on September 18, 
1970, at a workshop with 200 in attendance and with 38 churches represented. This 
was the result of extensive publicity through each county paper and radio station. 
New changes were explained and incorporated in the information and plans for the 
new year beginning October 1, 1970. 

The Eighty-Second Annual Meeting was held April 1, 1971 at the Woodland Church. 
36 churches were represented with 112 members attending. The theme of the meeting 
was "Living the Spirit of Christ in Openness and Freedom." Mrs. R, Jennings White, 
Director, called the meeting to order. Four young ladies, two Acteens and two G.A.'s 
gave a very interesting devotional in song and Bible readings. Three of the young 
ladies were Mrs. White's granddaughters. Words of welcome were extended by Mrs. 
Raleigh Vick and Rev. Lewis Sutton, who introduced Rev. Van Modling, who responded

with a beautiful solo, "So Send I You". All past and present Associational Directors 



The business session consisted of reports from various directors. Some matters 
concerning the Pearl Johnson Scholarship were cleared up. The recipient need not 
attend a Baptist College, but must associate herself with Baptist work and unions on 
the campus. The Association voted the scholarship to be offered to unmarried girls 
only. 

Mrs. White reported that 28 churches in the Association met the goal of $1.00 
per member for "Operation Pay-off". This was much larger than any other Associa- 
tion reported, making the West Chowan lead the state. The Association was also 
recognized as one of the 19 distinguished Associations in the state. The following 
churches were recognized as having distinguished Baptist Women Organizations: 
Buckhorn, Ahoskie, Cashie, and Elam. 

Mrs. Ruby Gentry was introduced and held the attention of the audience by telling 
of the work which she and her husband Jack were doing in Taiwan. 

The Director recognized Mrs. Elsie Lee, Secretary and Treasurer of the Association 
and commended her for continuing the work of Mrs. Thomas who resigned when her 
husband accepted another pastorate. The morning session adjourned to enjoy a 
delicious luncheon served by the ladies of the Woodland and Rich Square Churches. 

The highlight of the afternoon session was a resume' of a tour around the world 
given by Rev. and Mrs. Henry W, Stough. Six ladies from the congregation represented 
Israel, India, Thailand, China, Japan and Hawaii. They were dressed in the native 
attire of each country, thereby enhancing the lectures of Mr. and Mrs. Stough. 

The same slate of officers was elected except the new Associate-Director, who is 
Mrs. Mervin Early: 

Adult Baptist Women's Director: Mrs. C.B. Painter, Jr. 

Young Women's Director: Mrs. Randy Britton '

65. The following reports in the "Book of Reports" were adopted: 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON HISTORY 

Since the last report of your Committee, one church within the Association is 
known to have up-dated and published a history. This publication is A BRIEF HIS- 
TORICAL SKETCH OF MT. CARMEL BAPTIST CHURCH IN NORTHAMPTON COUNTY 
NEAR SEABOARD, NORTH CAROLINA, by W. Spurgeon Clarke and Audrey Long. It is 
understood that Hazel Griffin, a member of this Committee, is currently engaged 
in the preparation of a history of the Woodland Baptist Church. 

The following churches Within the Association are known to have prepared his- 
tories at some time in the past, apart from the brief sketches to be found in the 
Associational Minutes: Ahoskie First, Cashie, Meherrin, Mt. Carmel, Roberts 
Chapel, and Sandy Run. There may be others unknown to the writer. If this informa- 
tion is correct, however, it means that the Great majority of our churches have given 
less than adequate consideration to the preservation and publication of THEIR history. 

Anniversaries are always appropriate occasions for arousing and increasing the 
interest in one's heritage. With this in mind, the following churches are among those 
noted as approaching significant anniversary dates in the near future: Brantleys Grove 
(100th anniversary in 1977); Capeharts, (150th anniversary in 1974); Galatia (125th 
anniversary in 1977); Greens Cross (100th anniversary in 1974); Harrellsville (100th 
anniversary in 197^; Holly Grove (175th anniversary in 1979); Lawrence (100th an- 
niversary in 1974); Mars Hill (125th anniversary in 1979); Potecasi (200th anniver- 
sary in 1975); Republican (175th anniversary in 1978); Rich Square (125th anniversary 
in 1978); Ross (175th anniversary in 1979); Seaboard (100th anniversary in 1979); and 
Winton (100th anniversary in 1973). 

These churches - along with others in the Association - are encouraged to cele- 
brate these anniversaries in a significant way. Where possible, (i.e., where records 
are available), the preparation of a written history would add to such a celebration. 
The Committee on History will be happy to offer counsel or other assistance - when- 
ever possible - in the pursuit of such endeavors. 

Respectfully submitted,

tist State Convention of North Carolina began the 1971-72 academic year with enroll- 
ments comparable to those of 1970-71. Six of the institutions showed a slight in- 
crease in enrollment over the previous year. One reported a decrease over the enroll- 
ment figure for 1970-71.

Each of these institutions - along with the social service agencies of the Conven- 
tion - is working in conjunction with the Division of Stewardship Promotion of the 
Baptist State Convention in an effort to increase Cooperative Program receipts, look- 
ing forward to a State Cooperative Program goal of $10,000,000 in 1975. The six 
colleges and Wake Forest University have made funds available to the Division of 
Stewardship Promotion for the promotion of this concerted effort. Each of the institu- 
tions is also taking primary responsibility for stewardship promotion in at least 50 
churches in the State. 

It is anticipated that the action of the 1971 General Assembly - whereby certain 
funds are made available to individual North Carolina residents who choose to attend 
a private college or university within the State - will have a salutary effect upon 
the ability of Baptist institutions to continue to attract North Carolina Baptist students; 
especially those whose family incomes range within the low-to-medium income 
bracket. Such aid to students - operated much like the present GI Bill - will help 
to bridge the cost gap between State- supported and private institutions. 

Our own Chowan College began the academic year with an enrollment of 1533 
full-time students, a slight increase over the previous year. Intentions are to hold 
the enrollment at approximately 1500 for the immediate future; while enabling the 
college to construct certain facilities needed to serve a student body of this size 
adequately and well. In this regard, the college is now in the midst of a development 
campaign designed to raise $1,000,000 toward the cost of construction of a new 
science- engineering facility. It is anticipated that the structure will cost approxi- 
mately $1,500,000 equipped. 

"Chowan College - Mission Possible!" is the theme chosen for the current de- 
velopment campaign of Chowan College, but it is expressive of far more than just 
a short-range development goal. It is expressive of a spirit of optimism, hope, and 
faith which permeates the faculty- staff of the college relative to their educational 
task. With the continued prayers, encouragement, and support of the Baptists of the 
West Chowan Association, "Mission Possible" will become "Mission Accom- 
plished!"

BERTIE UNION MEETING 

The "Bertie Union Meeting" of the "Spring Associational Meeting", in the Mars 
Hill Church on April 30, 1971, was called to order by the Moderator, William M. 
Futrell, with the theme "The Church Ministering to Persons in Crisis." After singing 
"The Church's One Foundation", the devotional was led by Joseph Polinski of the 
Edgewood Church. The Moderator then extended a welcome to messengers and visi- 
tors, appointed the Nominating and Resolutions Committees, and then gave a short 
history of the "Bertie Union", stating that originally it covered the area west of the 
Chowan River, comprising the Bertie, Hertford, Northampton and Halifax Counties, 
and other territory, and was first called the "Albemarle Union". It was the big meet- 
ing of the year and was at least three days in duration. 

After Mr. Stough introduced the new pastors, Billy T. Mobley of the Ahoskie First 
Church brought a message on "The Pastor Equips for Ministry**, and in his message 
told how the Ahoskie Church has a "benevolent house" for ministering to the needy. 
After singing "God Give Us Christian Homes". Roger Williams, Director of the 
Kennedy Home, Kinston, brought a message on "The Crisis of the Family'*. He was 
followed by Corbin Cooper, Secretary of the Department of Interracial Cooperation of 
our Baptist State Convention, spoke on "The Crisis in Human Relations". After the 
benediction and blessing, the meeting adjourned for lunch served by the Edgewood, 
Mars Hill and Powells ville Churches. 



36 



In the afternoon session, Richard Poyner of the Elm Grove- Wakelon Churches 
brought the devotions. A message "Bridging the Generation Gap" was given by L. 
Thad Prevatte of the Rich Square Church, and this was followed by a message on 
"The Crisis of Alcohol and Drugs" by Oliver Fleming, chairman of the deacons of 
the Ahoskie First Church, which was a forceful message on one of the great dangers 
of our society. 

The Nominating Committee brought their report as follows: Moderator, William 
M. Futrell, Rich Scpare; Vice- moderator, John R, Blanchard, Sandy Run; Secretary, 
Mrs. Olivia H. Holloman, Center Grove; Chorister, R.D. Byrd, Capeharts; Pianist, Mrs. 
E, Bruce Lassiter, Potecasi. 

The Resolutions Committee made the following report which was adopted by a 
standing vote: "Whereas messengers and guests of the 1971 Bertie Union Meeting 
of the West Chowan Association met at the Mars Hill Church on Friday, April 30, 
1971, be it resolved: (1), Appreciation be expressed to the Program Committee for 
establishing such a timely and important theme and for engaging such fine and 
capable program personnel, and to each person on the program for sharing himself and 
his message with us, (2), Appreciation be expressed to the officers of the Bertie 
Union for serving faithfully, and (3), Appreciation be expressed to the host churches, 
Edgewood, Mars Hill and Powellsville, for comfortable accomodations and a delicious

Whereas the eighty-ninth session of the West Chowan Baptist Association has 
been a challenging, inspiring and informative meeting; be it resolved that we express 
our appreciation to the following: 

1. To the Program Committee for its work in planning the meeting, 

2. To the Moderator, Director of Associational Work, and the other officers and

Thomas H. Caulkins, Chairman 

71. The Moderator recognized Rev. J.N. Baggett of the Associational Brotherhood 
to present a report on "Baptist Men's Day." 

BAPTIST MEN'S DAY REPORT 

January 23rd, 1972 is "Baptist Men's Day" in all churches. Recently, the Brother- 
hood Officers met to plan the program for the coming year, and it was their thinking 
that it would be good for each church to have a layman from a sister church to fill 
the pulpit on the fourth Sunday in January. This will involve the matter of each church 
to elect a layman who would be willing to speak in another church, and to send his 
name to Henry W. Stough, our Director, so that men can be assigned to speak in 
churches other than own. Please send these names in early, so they can be scheduled 
in plenty of time. 

Respectfully submitted, 
JcN. Baggett, 

> Baptist Men's Mission Activity Leader

LONNIE SASSER 



Serving his Lord faithfully for many years, Lonnie S as ser prepared for his min- 
istry by attending Wake Forest College and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. 
He was ordained by Manley's Chapel Baptist Church (Moore County) on May, 26, 
1912, and at his passing he lacked but a few days of having served for sixty years 
as an ordained minister. Churches served by Brother Sasser include: Corinth (1913- 
1916); Jordan's Chapel (1912-1914); Manley's Chapel (1912-1914); and Royal's 
Chapel (1914-1916) in the old South River Association. He served Arlington Street 
(1916-1918, 1921-1925) and Calvary (1923) in the Roanoke Association. In the Cen- 
tral Association, he served Bay Leaf (1919), Glen Royal (1918-1919), Wake Union 
(1918-1919), Woodland (1918-1919) and Stony Hill (1919). He served St. Pauls 
(1925-1928) and Ten Mile (1927-1928) in the Robeson Association. 

In the West Chowan Association, where he spent the last 44 years of his min- 
istry, he served Ashleys Grove (1934-1926, 1938-1946), Aulander (1928-1939), 
Connaritsa (1935-1945), Conway (1941-1961), Earlys (1936-1945, 1947-1972), Elm 
Grove (1947-1948), Galatia (1945-1946), Hebron (1961-1967, 1968-1970), Lasker 
(1931-1946, 1967), Menola (1931-1934, 1943-1945), Mt. Carmel (1949-1953), Mt. 
Tabor (1948-1962), Potecasi (1931-1939), Roberts Chapel (1939-1941), Merry Hill 
(1945-1947) and Ross (1947-1948). 

Brother Sasser was very active in the re- activation of Chowan College, going 
about to the churches and enlisting their support. He was a Man of God, preaching, 
teaching and leading the churches into a deeper spiritual life, winning many people 
to Christ, and encouraging all to follow the Lord. This annual is lovingly dedicated 
to his memory.

Dedication 




HERMAN DILDAY 



A son of Hertford County in the West Chowan Association, Herman Dilday grew 
up here, and was won to the Lord at an early age, and later felt called to preach the 
gospel. He graduated from Chowan College and Wake Forest College, and upon com- 
pletion of his studies at Wake Forest in 1947, he was ordained by the Meherrin 
Baptist Church, and became pastor of the Second Baptist Church of Goldsboro in 
1947. In 1948, he moved into the bounds of the Chowan Association, where he 
served the Ebenezer and Moyock Churches (1948-1954). He then served Margaretts- 
ville (1954-1956) and Galatia (1954-1962) in our association before being called to 
the pastoral charge of the Weaverville Baptist Church (1962-1968) in the Buncombe 
Association. In 1968 he returned to the West Chowan as pastor of the Connaritsa and 
Hortons Churches, which he was serving faithfully at the time of his departure to be 
with the Lord. 

Brother Dilday was a strong preacher and leader, and his churches grew spiritually 
and materially under his leadership. Many are those who rise up and called him 
"blessed", for his ministry enabled the Spirit to change the lives of men and women 
who heard Brother Dilday speak. This annual is dedicated to him in grateful apprecia- 
tion for his life and ministry.

church of one hundred members and under shall be entitled to two Messengers, and 
for each additional one hundred members, an additional Messenger, provided that no

meeting. The relationship may be dissolved by a two-thirds vote of the messengers 
one year after irregularities have been brought to the attention of the Association.

EEPORT OF THE GENERAL BOARD 

The General Board met four times during the year, discussing all of the items 
which were brought to its attention, and doing all that was necessary to carry on the 
work of the Association. The meetings also offered opportunities for pastors and 
laymen from the churches to become better acquainted with each other and to realize 
that there is a close bond of fellowship in the Lord, as they sought to carry out His 
work in their several churches. 

At the DeceniDer Meeting, the following were elected officers of the General 
Board: Terry H. Jones, chairman; J. Felton White, vice-chairman, and Henry W. 
Stough, secretary. The Board also elected the following to the Executive Committee: 
Tom Davis of Cashie (Bertie), Mrs. Daniel M. Spell of Union (Hertford), and Fenton 
Mayle of Bethel (Northampton). 

The Executive Committee had recommended that the Moderator appoint a Com- 
mittee of Five to explore the matter of the Ridgecrest Property which was offered to 
the Association by Dr. and Mrs. R. Kelly White. The Moderator appointed Russell 
H. Johnson, Jr., of Conway, chairman; Vernon E. Taylor of Rich Square, Bennie 
Pledger of Colerain, Earl Vann of Meherrin and John M. Chamlee of Aulander. Action 



16 



was also taken which would end the election of "Institutional Representatives" at 
the annual Meeting, and instead, having these as members of the "Committee on 
Education and Pronx>tion" of the General Board, so that they could report to the 
Board, This action was taken at the March 27th meeting. 

On June 26th, there was a large attendance, and new pastors were recognized: 
Grady Trivette of Siloam, Maurice McLain of Greens Cross, and Mrs. Walter S. 
Jones, new Director of Woman's Missionary Union. There were reports from all of 
the committees, and special attention was given to Seminary Extension work. Tim 
Sellers of Ashleys Grove was elected Director of Seminary Extension Work, and to 
be the liaison person between the Southern and State Conventions in planning for the 
Seminary Extension Centers in the Association. The motion was passed to dedicate 
the 1972 "Minutes" to Rev. Lonnie Sasser and Rev. Herman T. Dilday, two of our 
beloved pastors who had passed away recently. 

In September, the budget for 1973 was read and approved, with a few explanations. 
Lee Brittle announced the conferences for Deacons on Sunday, November 5th at the 
Conway, Winton and Mars Hill Churches with Dr. Nathan C, Brooks, Burrell Lucas,

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

The Committee on Evangelism met on June 26th, and discussed plans for a 
School of Deacons to be held this year during the month of November. After the de- 
cision was made. Dr. Nathan C. Brooks of the Baptist State Convention was con- 
tacted and plans have been made for three schools to be held on Sunday, November 
5th. 

On August 18th, a number of Young People in our Association attended the 
Youth Evangelism Night in Greensboro. Many young people made decisions for 
Christ, and a large number committed their lives to full-time Christian service. 

Rev. Jimmy Hinson spoke at the Pastors' Conference on September 11th, and ex- 
plained the WIN Program and offered to give any assistance we may desire, in 
groups of churches, or to the Association. He shared some of the success that many 
churches have enjoyed through the usage of these materials. 

Several of the churches in the West Chowan Association have used parts of the 
WIN Program and several others have indicated that they might be ready for the Pro- 
gram in 1973 or 1974. Mr. Bill Lamb and Mr. Jimmy Hinson have offered their ser- 
vices to the Association and to the churches, and if any church would like to know 
more about the program, please feel free to call upon the State Workers or your Com- 
mittee on Evangelism.

REPORT OF THE MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE 



As there were no irregularities called to the attention of the Membership Com- 
mittee, we did not have a meeting during the Associational Year of 1971 - 1972. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter S. Jones, Chairman 

18. Joe D. McLean, chairman of the Committee on Survey and Study gave an oral 
report with no recommendations. It was accepted. 

19. Harvey L. Coppedge gave the report of the Committee on Missions, and it 
was accepted: 

REPORT OF THE MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

During the year the Missions Committee gave its attention to two things. It 
tried to complete the work of establishing a Christian Ministry at the jail in Winton. 
Last year efforts were made in this matter, but failed to materialized, but now the 
pastor of the Winton Baptist Church has promised to work in close relationship with 
those in charge and help when needed. We hope that this will be a ministry that will 
benefit many. 

The major task for the Missions Committee was that of working with Mr. Stough 
in planning for a "World Missions Conference". Arrangements were made and the 
Conferences were held for two weeks: March 12 - 17, and 19 - 24. People were 
blessed with the ministries of 21 missionaries each week from many parts of the 
world. We had 10 different Foreign Missionaries, 10 different Home Missionaries, 
and 8 different State Missionaries who told of their mission work around the world. 

Services were held in our churches Sunday through Friday of each week. Two 
"Mission Fairs'" were arranged: one on March 12th at the Colerain Church and the 
other on March 19th at the Conway Church. The Pastors and Missionaries came to- 
gether in meetings for three mornings each week for messages, fellowship and 
lunch. The first week we met on Monday at Merry Hill, on Wednesday at Aulander 
and on Friday at Colerain. During the second week we met on Monday at Seaboard, 
on Wednesday at Galatia, and on Friday at the Roberts Chapel Church. 

We had 46 churches paricipating in the "Missions Conferences'". There were 7 
who accepted Jesus as Saviour, and 2 who volunteered for mission work. Subscrip- 
tions to "The Commission" and "Home Missions Magazine" totaled 106. The 
grand total attendance was 17,454 with a daily average attendance of 207, and each 
church an average attendance of 41. Good financial support was given by the churches. 

The Committee wishes to thank all of you who helped to make these conferences 
a blessing to many people in our Association.

Committee on Missions 

20. The Chairman of the Committee on Ordinations, Harvey L. Coppedge pre- 
sented their report, which was accepted: 

REPORT OF THE ORDINATION COMMITTEE 

Wallace C. Britt was born on October 14, 1932 in Conway, N.C., and was saved 
while attending a revival meeting when he was nine years old, and from then on he 
was active in his church. In 1965 while he was in Military Service for his country 
he felt the call to the Gospel Ministry. During the next year while living in Texas, 
he was licensed to preach by the Englewood Baptist Church. Wallace has attended 
Southwestern Baptist Seminary and Dallas Baptist College. He served Cobb Island 



18 



Mission and Emmanuel Baptist Church in Maryland. On March 19, 1972, Bolen^s 
Creek Baptist Church of Burnsville, N. C. called Wallace to be its pastor and re- 
quested the Ashleys Grove Church to ordain him for the ministry. 

Tim A. Sellers, pastor of Ashleys Grove Church contacted the Ordination Com- 
mittee and immediately plans were made to call a presbytery to question Wallace. 
The meeting of the Presbytery was held on April 15, 1972 at the Ashleys Grove 
Church, with 11 pastors and deacons present. After questioning Wallace, the mem- 
bers of the Presbytery were pleased to recommend him to Ashleys Grove Church for 
ordination, and on April 16, 1972, Wallace C. Britt was ordained. 

After the call to worship, and singing of the hymn "Jesus Calls Us" there was 
an invocation and a responsive scripture reading "Call To Consecration**. Then the 
congregation sang, "O Master, Let Me Walk With Thee", and the pastor then stated 
the purpose of the meeting, and the Presbytery reported its recommendation. A 
deacon moved to proceed with the ordination, and Walter S. Jones of Conway 
preached the ordination sermon. The pastor then gave the charge to the candidate, 
and a deacon, Rodney Askew gave the charge to the church. After the ordination 
prayer by Henry W. Stough, the ordained ministers and deacons present came by and 
laid their hands on the head. Grover Burgess then presented Wallace with a Bible 
from the church, and after the congregation sang, "Saviour, Like a Shepherd Lead 
Us", the newly ordained minister pronounced the benediction, and the members 
of the congregation came by to give the handclasp of friendship and loyalty. 



21. Lewis H. Sutton, Chairman of the Stewardship and Finance Committee, pre- 
sented the Budget for 1973, and made a few explanatory remarks, concerning the

RECOMMENDATIONS: 



1. We recommend that each church contribute at least IQPjo more to the work of 
the Association, than the church gave in 1972. 

2. We recommend that the Association make an application for $1,000 to the 
Baptist State Convention for a supplement to the salary. It is understood, however, 
that in any event the salary will be the amount stated in the budget. 



We suggest that each church confer with their pastor conceming his hospitaliza- 
tion expenses, and offer assistance if needed. 

(This proposed Budget for 1973 was apprvoed by the General Board on September 
25th, and is recommended to the Association). 

22. Richard R, Poyner of Elm Grove, made an amendment to the motion, "That 
the Association not make application to the Baptist State Convention for a $1,000. 
grant." After discussion, the amendment was defeated, and the motion to adopt the 
Budget for 1973 with the recommendations was passed. 

23. Daniel M. Spell of Union made the motion that the Stewardship Committee 
discuss this matter, and report back to the Association next year. After some dis- 
cussion, this motion was passed. 

24. The Treasurer, John M. Chamlee, gave his report which was accepted:

25. Dr. R, Hargus Taylor moved that the report of the History Committee as 
written in the "Book of Reports" be accepted. The motion was passed. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON HISTORY 



The preservation of church records is the only guarantee that future generations 
will have access to adequate data for the writing of local church histories. This 
means the records of church conferences, deacons' meetings, WMU records, Sunday 
School jrecords, records pertaining to mens' organizations, newsletters, and the week- 
ly church bulletins. Unfortunately, most Baptist churches have not exercised suffi- 
cient interest to the preservation of literary historical data to see that such records 
were preserved. 

Within the West Chowan Baptist Association, the earliest records of church con- 



21 



ferences - especially among those (^hurehes whose ronstitutions date from the 
Eighteenth Century - have been lost or destroyed. In some cases these records 
- or segments of them - are still around, but the churches have made no real 
effort to collect and to preserve them. To the knowledge of the author, the following 
churches liave preserved portions of their records on microfilm: Buckhorn, Cashie, 
Conway, Jackson, Meherrin, Mt. Tabor, Murfreesboro, Sandy Run and Union. Others 
are known to have ancient records which the ravages of time and/of the elements 
will render illegible - if not fully destroy. 

Even less attention has been given - as a rule - to the records of church 
auxiliaries and organizations. Many of the latter, however, are still recoverable to 
the churches which wish to give the time and attention to doing so. Accordingly, 
each church would do well to name a functioning history committee, empowered to 
collect and preserve all such data FOR THE CHURCH. To neglect such a respon- 
sibility is to deprive future generations of the only permanently adequate accounts 
by which the faith and life of the Fathers may continue to serve as guide, correction, 
and inspiration to the children of tomorrow. 

Your committee would welcome the opportunity to meet and work with such local 
church history conunittees. The Baptist Collection of Chowan College can provide 
space for the preservation of records. The Baptist Collection at Wake Forest Univer- 
sity is equipped to microfilm church records and/or provide space for the preserva- 
tion of the same. Let us neglect the collection and preservation of our church re- 
cords no longer! 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. Hargus Taylor, Chairman 

26. A motion was made by Walter S. Jones that the report of Woman's Mission- 
ary Union as printed in the "Book of Reports" be accepted. The motion was carried. 

REPORT OF THE WOMANS' MISSIONARY UNION 

In preparation for the year of 1971-72, an Associational Workshop was held in the 
Murfreesboro Church with Miss Linda Warren, State Baptist Young Woman's Director y 
in charge. Mrs, Peggy Lowe, Mission Action Chairman, suggested that the Associa- 
tional W.M.U. contribute funds to help a young man from Nigeria attend Chowan Col- 
lege. The Associational W.M.U. adopted this suggestion as a Mission Action pro- 
ject and $300.00 was donated to this cause. 34 churches were represented with 130 
present. 

The theme for the 83rd Annual Meeting was "Expect from God, Attempt for God", 
and Meherrin Church was the host. After extended welcomes and recognition of 
distinguished members and guests, reports were given and accepted. The Director, 
Mrs. White, presented three framed certificates of Distinguished and Advanced 
Merits, representing her three years of service. West Chowan Association has also 
met the Distinguished Elevation in this year of 1971-72. The mission project for the 
year was donated aid for a young gentleman from Africa to attend Chowan College. 
Over $500.00 was collected for this purpose. $300.00 was given for the year of 1971- 
72, and the council has voted to advance $250,00 for the year 1972-73. Since the 
expense allotment was not used during the year, the council also decided to help a 
third girl in the scholarship category to attend Chowan College for the year 1972- 
73 only. 

Reports of Directors 

Mrs. C.B. Painter, Jr., reported 58 Baptist Women Organizations with 1678 mem- 
bers with two organizations meeting the points for Distinguished Merit: Ahoskie 
First and El am Churches. 

Mrs. Randy Britton reported 14 Young Baptist Women Organizations with 100 



22 



members enrolled. 

Mrs. Linda Parker reported 36 churches reporting "Girls-in- Action" Oraanizations 
with 428 members enrolled. 

Mrs. R.G. Whitley, Acteens Director, gave the following report: 40 Acteen or- 
ganizations, a successful camp at Chowan College with 165 girls attending. The 
girls participated in mission study, prayer, creative activities and stewardship. 
They enjoyed their missionary and four little Indian girls from Pembroke. 

25 churches reported "Mission Friends" organization with 283 members, in the 
report given by Mrs. Robert Brinkley, Director. 

The highlight of the afternoon and evening sessions was the presence of Mrs. 
R.C. Henderson, who with her husband is a missionary to the Philippines. She thrilled 
those present with her beautiful voice raised in song as praise to the Heavenly 
Father. She also named many phases: Christians could pray to aid missionaries, 
and closed her talk telling of their work and experiences in the Philippines, where 
her husband is an evangelist, and where they both teach in the Seminary in Baguio. 
Mrs. Henderson is dear to our organizations as she is the daughter of our own Henry 
and Kay Stough who work diligently in our West Chowan Association. 

The 1973 Associational Meeting will be at the Aulander Church on April 5th, 
beginning at 4:30 p.m.

1973", with explanations and emphases. The motion to accept the report, and to 
approve of the calendar was passed. 

THE DIRECTOR OF ASSOCIATIONAL WORK REPORT 

Last year witnessed several plans and projects which helped the churches of our 
Association with the emphasis on Missions, Stewardship and Evangelism, in addition 
to the activities of the churches themselves in carrying on their own work. Nearly 
a third of our churches lost their pastors during the year, and this has always been 
a hindrance to a church that is planning on a long-range schedule. We also lost two 
of our finest ministers: Lonnie Sasser who has served so many of our churches, and 
was a great help in the re-activitation of Chowan College, and Herman T, Dilday, 
who was raised in Hertford County, and had been pastor of Galatia, Connarits a and 
Hortons Churches in our Association. 

The Committee on Missions planned a fine "World Missions Conference" and 
46 of our churches took part. It renewed our interest in world missions and revealed 
to us how our mission money is spent in more than 70 countries of the world, and 
also in our own country, our state and our associations. We also had a helpful 
"Stewardship Clinic" at the Pleasant Grove Church with a former member of Cashie, 
Harold White, leading the conference. Revivals were held in most of our churches, 
and the WIN (Witness Involvement Now) was adopted by several churches. 

We have sought to be helpful in every way possible, and we were invited to many 
of the churches to speak, teach, and consult with the leaders. We are very happy to 
help in every way possible, and have met with "Pulpit Committees", "Deacons", 
"Nominating Committees" and other groups such as Sunday School and Church 
Training leaders. Brotherhoods and Boys. 

During the year we traveled about 25,000 miles to serve the Lord and to help 
our people; we have had innumerable conferences and meetings; preached and taught 
in most of our churches; assisted the Associational Council and Committees; have 
sent out nearly 1,000 copies of "THE WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST" each month, and 
have written countless letters and cards in promoting meetings and the general 
work of our Association. 

As we face the new year, may it be with the high resolve that this year we will 
do more for the Lord than ever before, and that we will be faithful to the responsibil- 
ities that have been given to us, and to our church, and to our Association!

Henry W. Stough, Director

35. "The History of the Aulander Baptist Church was read by B.B. MitchelL 

HISTORY OF THE AULANDER BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Aulander Baptist Church was instituted here in the year 1886 with members 
from the old Dudley's Grove Church and other neighboring churches joining with the 
Aulander people. 

This church was located on the corner of what is now the Aulander- Ahoskie 
highway and Powellsville road. The cost of construction was according to records, 
$1300, with a seating capacity of 500. Among the pioneer builders of the industrial 
life of the town, we find many of the same names of those constituting the First 
Aulander Baptist Church, The Rev. C.W. Scarboro was the first pastor. The Rev. L. 
M. Curtis, from Sampson County, served longest. 

As the town grew the church was moved into the incorporated limit, to our pre- 
sent location, and many of our members moved their membership back to the old 
Dudley Grove Church which is now known as Oak Grove Baptist Church located on 
the Aulander- Ahoskie highway. 

Back in the year 1926, under the leadership of the Rev. J. Fred Stimpson and 
supervision of the church building committee the old wooden church building was 
torn down and a large new church structure was erected on the same site, at the 
cost of approximately $55,000. Also under the same leadership and supervision our 
first parsonage was erected, on the present site, at a cost of approximately $7,000. 

During the depression years with the large indebtness on the church our fore- 



27 



fathers had somewhat of a struggle in making payments on the church indebtness, 
however, under the devine leadership of the Revs. Lonnie Sasser, W.P. Milne and 
Joseph Folds, our indebtness was liquidated and the notes were burned at public 
ceremony in the year of 1946. 

For the next nineteen or twenty years our church moved along smoothly under the 
pastorate of the following men: The Revs. W.P. Milne, John Houston, Joseph Tally, 
Eslie Phillips, Charles Sinclair and James O. Shurling. 

By the year 1966 our people realized the need of a renovation program for our 
church building and parsonage. Under the leadership of the Rev. James Shurling and 
the building committee, our church building was renovated and modernized at a 
cost of approximately $65,000 and our parsonage repaired at a cost of approximately 
$8,000. 

Since that time our pastorate was served by the Rev. N.L, Modling until June 
1972. On July 1st, 1972 our pastorate was filled by a young college graduate, Mr. 
Robbie Parker, as supply pastor, until August 31st, 1972. Mr. Rowland Pniette has 
been with us as intermin pastor since August. 

Today we are looking forward with much anticipation for the arrival of our future 
pastor, who is unknown at this time. 




36. Ernest C. Upchurch, Director of City and Metropolitan Missions of the Bap- 
tist State Convention, spoke on "Working Together: The State Convention and the 
Association." 

37. The congregation sang, "O For a Faith", led by Bob Dills. 

38. Robert F. Wyatt, chairman, brought the report of the Nominating Committee. 
The report was accepted and the officers were elected. The members were also 
elected to the General Board. 

39. The Report of the Committee on Committees was presented by R, Ernest 
Poston, which was accepted and the members duly elected. 

40. Billy T. Mobley, chairman of the "Special Committee To Study A Possible 
Nursing Home", presented the following report, which was accepted unanimously. 

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE TO STUDY 
A POSSIBLE NURSING HOME 

After careful study, this committee has felt that, in the light of its best judg- 
ment, it would be unwise for the West Chowan Baptist Association to proceed with 
plans toward the building and maintaining of a non-profit nursing home. 

Study now indicates that the national trend is for religious organizations to re- 
lease their present medical facilities rather than to establish new ones. It is the 



28 



considered judgment of most hospital authorities that in the immediate future 
(perhaps no longer than 5 years) that Congress will enact a National Compulsory 
Health Insurance. This will dramatically change the entire field of medical care. 
It is impossible at this time to adequately plan for such a facility. Without question, 
the Federal Government is in the field of Health, Education and Welfare. It is felt 
that we will not want to be so heavily involved with governmental programs. 

Therefore, this committee recommends that we proceed no further with the 
building, maintaining and operating a nursing home. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Billy T. Mobley, Chairman 

41. During the period of "Miscellaneous Business*', Billy T. Mobley commented 
on the smallness of the Budget for 1973, and made a motion that the Association 
ask the General Board to make an intense study of our Associational Program and 
our budgetary needs. The motion was passed. 

42. It was announced that here would be a nursery at the Lewiston Church. 

43. The Clerk was instructed to send a "Get Weir' note to Charles R, Brinkley 
of Colerain who is missing his first annual meeting since 1909, and who is now in 
the hospital. 

44. After the motion to adjourn, the benediction was prayed by Bervin Ferguson, 
pastor of the Capeharts Church. 

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, LEWISTON 
Wednesday, October 25, 1972 

45. The Moderator, Terry H. Jones, called the meeting to order at 4 p.m. 

46. The Worship Period was conducted by Adron A. Modlin, pastor of the River- 
side Church, who used the theme "Grow in Grace and in the Knowledge of Our Lord" 
(2 Pet. 3:18), foUowed by the hymn "He Keeps Me Singing", led by Ernest Poston, 
pastor of Roberts Chapel Church. 

47. The Moderator recognized J. Hines Adams, former pastor of the Winton- 
Holly Springs Church, and William E. Carter, former pastor of St. Johns Church. 

48. A Memorial Service was observed by Mrs. W. -Judson Barnacascel of the

His saints," (Psa. 116:15), followed by Mrs. Sylvia Brooks who sang, "How Great

College, the Association heard a report of Chowan College by Dr. Bruce Whitaker, 
concerning the progress and needs of our own Baptist School. 

47. Robert Earl Williford gave "The History of theFirst Baptist Church, Lewiston", 
with a few extemporaneous and humorous remarks:

HISTORY OF THE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, 



LEWISTON 

The Lcwiston Baptist Church was organized on Wednesday, September 26, 1883, 
with 32 charter nieiiibers, as follows: J.W. Cherry, H.P. Harrell, W.A. Cherry, E. 
P. Cherry, A.J. Askew, R.D. Worley, Frank Rayford, B.F. Parker, T.F. Lee, J.G. Baze- 
more, Richard Barnes, W.D. Garriss, J.A. Outlaw, W.E. Copeland, Joseph Flythe, 
J.B. Joyner, and W.J. Early. 

Also, Mrs. J.W. Cherry, Lena R, Cherry, Sallie J. Cherry, Sallie Askew, Maggie 

C. Worley, Elizabeth Worley, Jane Winborn, Mary E. Rayford, Annie C. Parker, 
Mary E. Copeland, Roxanna Flythe, Sara M. Outlaw, Frances Garriss, Annie Garriss, 
and Elizabeth Barnes. 

There appears to have been only occasional preaching during the first several 
months of the church's life, when in November 1884 the Rev. C.W. Scarborough a- 
greed to preach for the congregation on one Saturday in each month until a pastor 
could be secured. On April 11, 1885, Dr. John Mitchell accepted a call by the church, 
becoming her first regular pastor. Since that date the pastoral leadership has been 
exercised as follows: John Mitchell (1885-1888); T.T. Speight (1888-1895); J.W. 
Powell (1895-1896); S.B. Barnes (1897-1899); J.B. Chitty (1900); Thomas G. Weed 
(1901-1904); R,L. Gay (1905-1909); John F. Cale (1910-1914); T.L. Brown (1915- 
1921); W.H. Hollowell (1922-1923); M.P. Davis (1923-1926); James I. Kendrick 
(1927-1929); H.F. Brinson (1930-1937); Guy C. Moore (1937-1942); C.C. Prince 
(1942-1944); J.F. Roach (1944-1948); Ernest C. Upchurch (1948-1952); Grover Everett 
(1952-1956); John B. Stephenson (1956-1965); Charles F. Jones (1966-1971); and 

D. H. McCollough (1971-) 

Securing her first stated pastor was not the only problem which confronted the 
new congregation at Lewiston. The coiiunittee chosen to select and secure a site 
to build the new house of worship was having disagreement as to where the house 
should be located. After several meetings and reports, a site was purchased at a 
cost of $30.00. Then, however, the building committee apparently was unable to 
agree on the size and constmction of the building. The first building committee 
was dismissed and a second one chosen before construction was begun on a fran]ed, 
rectangualr stnicture, 35' x 64'. The Records of Church Conference for November 8, 
1884 report: "Assembled in the new building on Saturday before the 2nd Lord's 
Day in November .... " However, the building was not completed and used for regu- 
lar worship services until the spring of 1885, after the doors, windows, and a church 
bell had been put into place. 

A Sunday School was organized in May 1885 with H.P. Harrell serving as the 
superintendent. The first "protracted meeting" was begun on'the second Sunday in 
August 1885, with Pastor Mitchell assisted by the Rev, Jeremiah Bunch. Services 
were held each day of the week at 11 a.m. and at 2 p.m. A Woman's Missionary 
Society was organized in 1898, with Mrs. S.B. Barnes, President. Sunbeams and 
other auxiliary organizations soon followed. 

Additions to the original church building were made in 1902 and 1916, with at- 
tempts made to provide adequate classroom space for the Sunday School and other 
organizations. On March 23, 1939, the Church in called conference decided to sell 
the existing property and to build the present building on Cashie Street. The edi- 
fice - Georgian in style and brick- veneered - was dedicated debt-free on Decem- 
ber 7, 1941. In 1955 the Church decided to add an educational unit to the existing 
structure, which unit was completed and dedicated in 1958. The present parsonage- 
the second in the history of the Lewiston Baptist Church - was completed in 1967. 

Finally, the First Baptist Church of Lewiston has been a part of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association since the beginning, attempting thereby to unite her influence 



30 



and witness to that of sister Baptist conaregations in the area in spreadina the 
Gospel of her Lord to the uttermost parts of the earth. 




58. The congregation sang, "Make Me a Blessing", led by Ernest Poston. 

59. Russell H. Johnson, Jr., presented the report of the Committee on the Ridge- 
crest Property, and the report was accepted unanimously: 



REPORT OF THE RIDGECREST PROPERTY 

The committee on Ridgecrest Property unanimously recommends to the West 
Chowan Baptist Association that it accept the gift of real estate situated in Black 
Mountain, North Carolina by Dr. and Mrs, R. Kelly White. The committee further 
recommends that the Association construct a cottage on the real estate for the use 
and benefit of the several churches of the Association. The Committee recommends 
that the Association request each church in the Association to voluntarily pay into 
the Association $.75 per resident men±)er per year for three years. The Committee 
unanimously recommends to the Association that the moderator familiarize each 
church with the project. 

Respectfully submitted, 
RH. Johnson, Jr. 
Chairman 

60. The Committee on Preachers gave the following report, by their chairman, 
Dr. W.D. Morris; FIRST DAY, Daniel M. Spell, preacher; John R. Blanchard, alter- 
nate; SECOND DAY, Robert F. Wyatt, preacher; D.H. McCollough, alternate. The re- 
port was accepted. 

61. The Resolutions Committee gave the following report:

62. Mrs. Lois Peele of the Enrollment Committee gave the following report on

not include the messengers who were enrolled on the first day. 

63. The Director of Development of the Baptist Childrens' Homes, W. Isaac 
Terrell gave a report on our Baptist Social Services, which included the Homes for

64. D. H. McCollough, pastor of the Lewiston First Church gave some instruc- 
tions, and then gave the benediction and blessing, on the evening meal prepared by

EVENING SESSION 

65. The Moderator called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m., and reminded us of 
the theme for the session, "Quit You Like Men! Be Strong!'* (1 Cor. 16:13) 

66. The Clerk made the motion that all reports in the "Book of Reports" which 
have not been acted upon, be approved and inserted in the "Minutes". The motion 
was passed, which included the following reports: 

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL DEPARTMENT 

Your Associational Sunday School Department is committed to the task of help- 
ing the churches to reach as many people as possible of all ages, to teach them 
effectively the Biblical Revelation, and to lead them to faith in Jesus Christ and to 
church membership and Christian ministry. 

Our main emphasis this year was on Vacation Bible Schools. Six volunteer work- 
ers attended the State Vacation Bible School Clinic at Wingate College in January 
and later on led age-group conferences in our Associational Vacation Bible School 
Clinic held on April 14th at the Murfreesboro Baptist Church with 92 present from 
27 of our churches. This attendance and number of churches represented was con- 
siderably less than in previous years. 

In September two planning meetings were held with several representative pas- 
tors and church members in order to discover how our department could better meet 
the needs of our Sunday Schools. As a result of these meetings, plans have been 
made for a "Teaching Improvement Workshop" to be held froln January 29 to Feb- 
ruary 1, 1973, at the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie with conferences for each age- 
group division to be led by approved workers from our State Sunday School Depart- 
ment. We urge all Directors to make every effort to have their teachers attend this 
workshop. 

This report would not be complete without a word of appreciation to our pastors 
and churches for their support and especially to those volunteer workers who con- 
tributed so much in time and effort to our accomplishments. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. Ernest Poston, Director, 
, , Sunday School Department 

REPORT OF THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT 
Church music in the West Chowan Association continues to grow and improve. 



32 



Last year the total music enrolment of our churches Increased by 87. As an otticer 
of the Association it has been my pleasure during the year, to assist several of our 
churches by providing information, music and suggestions. This is the ministry 
that we wish to encourage. 

On February 28, the Regional Choir Festival was conducted in the First Baptist 
Church of Ahoskie. Three choirs from that church participated, along with groups 
from Scotland Neck and Elizabeth City. The Regional Festival is sponsored by the 
State Convention for the Associations. We urge more of our own churches to take 
a part in this yearly project as it is a tremendous source of growth and encourage- 
ment. 

Our Association "Youth Night" on March 18th at the Mt. Tabor Church enjoyed 
a large Youth Choir directed by Mrs. Daniel Spell. Special music was also provided 
at the "Bertie Union Meeting" on April 28th at Elm Grove Church by a group of 
ministers. The Ministers' Chorus is also responsible for musical offerings at this 
year's annual Association Meeting. 

Respectfully submitted, 
; Robert F. Dills, Director, 

Department of Music 

REPORT OF THE CHURCH TRAINING DEPARTMENT 

These are exciting days for "Church Training". Many new ideas, new periodi- 
cals and a new seriousness to the need for Christian Training are coming to us 
through the Church Training Ministry. 

May I urge each of you to stay up-to-date with current training materials, es- 
pecially "The Training Union Magazine". This is essential to keep up with the 
changing pattern of a "Church Training Program". Th.^s is a day and time for train- 
ing, it is NOT a time for quitting or giving up. We must accept this motto if we are 
to survive this complex society of today. "We must train and re- train, educate, 
and re-educate or die." We must begin new organizations of Church Training in our 
churches or die. Some have given up in past years. We urge you to re- think your 
Church Training Program, l^t us help you whenever and wherever we can. 

We had a wonderful fellowship at our supper- meeting for the Church Training 
Directors and their pastors. "M" Night was very exciting and the "Literature Booth" 
was very helpful to all. "Youth Night" was well- attended by our youth at the Mt. 
Tabor Church. 

We are looking forward to an exciting year as you pray and assist with your 
support in a "Church Training Program" as a means of a more effective Christian 
witness in your church and community. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter F. Hill, Director 
Church Training Department 

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD WORK 

The West Chowan Associational Brotherhood has had a very successful year. The 
Baptist Mens' Meeting in Powellsville proved to be a success with four personal 
testimonies. The Man- Boy Outing on the Chowan River was enjoyed by both men and 
boys, with swimming, games, an on-the-beach fire and meal, followed by devotions 
and a review of Royal Ambassador Work. Another meeting of this type is planned for 
June 16th, beginning at 4 p.m. and men and boys from all the churches are invited 
to attend. 

We have met with several churches in helping to organize Royal Ambassador 
units and groups of Baptist Men, and we hope that you will call on us to help you

in your church. We will assist you in planning your work, and hope that you will 
continue and grow to be effective witnesses for the Lord in your community. It is 
not necessary to have a meal every time that you have a Brotherhood Meeting. You 
might forget God's Work, for the Lord needs us to serve in our churches and our As- 
sociation. The pastors cannot do their' s and our work too. A week has seven days. 
Let's give all seven days each week to the cause of Christ. 

Be sure to make some good, constructive plans, for we never do more than that 
for which we plan.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

Although enrollment figures for the 1972-73 academic year have not been re- 
leased as of the date of this writing, projected figures indicated that the six Baptist 
colleges and Wake Forest University would show total enrollment comparable to 
those of 1971-72. It should be cautioned, however, that church- related colleges can- 
not be expected to show the kinds of annual gains in enrollment figures for the near 
future which have been characteristic of the last decade. Some may show slight de- 
creases from previous enrollment "highs" before leveling off to a fairly stable en- 
rollment figure. 

The institutions of Christian higher education deserve a great deal of the credit 
for the gains made in Cooperative Program receipts through the Baptist Churches in 
North Carolina during 1971-72. Our schools- along with the social service agencies 
of the Baptist State Convention- were directly involved in the first phase of the Coop- 
erative Program Advance effort, aimed at a $10,000,000 budget for the Convention 
by 1975. These same institutions and agencies have already been engaged in work 
with particular churches and /or associations of churches in the second phase of 
this effort, with emphasis upon increased stewardship during 1972-73. 

Our own Chowan College is in the midst of celebrating her 125th academic year 
as an institution of Christian higher education. Special attention is being focused 
upon this anniversary throughout the year, with individuals and church groups in- 
vited to share with the college community in celebration. The focal point for this 
observance during the fall semester will be "Founders' Day", October 31, with in- 
vitations sent to some 2,500 individuals and/or groups, inviting their participation 
in a special convocation and related events on that day. 

"Target Date" for successful completion of the $1,000,000.00 MISSION POS- 
SIBLE development emphasis is set for December 15. As of this writing, better than 
80<yo of the campaign goal has been reached in gifts and/or pledges. The new 
science facility being constructed on campus is well ahead of the scheduled com- 
pletion date, with occupancy of the building assured by the opening of the 1973-74 
academic year. 

Enrollment at Chowan College this year is 1239, with students indicating a 
sense of dedication and seriousness - academic and otherwise - which is truly 
gratifying. Of the students enrolled at Chowan, 156 came from the three counties 
served by the churches of the West Chowan Baptist Association. In this regard, the 
Board of Trustees, the administration, and the faculty of the college urge your con- 
tinued patronage and support, while expressing continuing gratitude for your faith- 
fulness and loyalty in the days now past. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. Guy Revelle, Jr.

REPORT OF 



THE SEMINARY EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

As requested, the Seminary Extension Committee invited Roy Smith, Director 
of Town and Country and Seminary Extension, in North Carolina to come to our As- 
sociation and meet with pastor Walter Hill of the Askewville Church. As a result 
a Seminary Extension class was begun at the Askewville Church. Rev. Walter Jones, 
pastor of the Conway Baptist Church taught the course, which was Old Testament 
111; this is the first in a two-course study of the Old Testament. It includes a 
study of the Old Testament from Adam through David. 

The dates of the class were July 10 - September 25,1972. Initially there was 
great interest, and eighteen were enrolled, and nine completed the course with the 
tests to get a grade. We consider this a very successful Seminary Extension Class. 
We extend a very hearty thanks to Rev. Walter Jones in giving his time and energy 
to teach the class. 

This next year we would like to establish several Seminary Extension Centers 

in our Association. Any church can have one if there is sufficient interest and a 

teacher can be secured. We had an article in the "WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST" in 

September to invite response for Seminary Extension Centers. We enjoy serving 

West Chowan Baptists! ^ ^„ , . i 

^ Respectfully submitted, 

Tim A. Sellers, Chairman

HISTORY OF ELM GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Elm Grove Baptist Church was constituted on May 15, 1932, following a 
fruitful revival meeting which had been conducted in the community by the Rev. 
Georae W. Burch. The meetings were so well attended that the small tenant house 
in which the series of services had been scheduled proved to be insufficient to 
accomodate the congregations. Accordingly, a brush arbor was erected near the 
house in order that the crowds might be accomodated. The church was constituted 
with 57 charter members. 

But the beginnings of interest in a church in "Jernigan Town" probably should 
be traced to the establishing of a Sunday School in 1895, with sessions being con- 
ducted in the Elm Grove Public School building, located at the intersection near the 
present site of the Elm Grove Church building. This Sunday School was organized 
with 62 members, meeting from 9 a.m. - 12 noon, with a short intermission sched- 
uled at 10:30 a.m. For several years following the consolidation of public schools 
- which meant the elimination of Elm Grove School - the Sunday School ceased 
to exist in the community. But the School was eventually revived, with meetings 
being conducted in the tenant houses previously mentioned. 

Soon after the revival meeting mentioned above, the people of the community 
around Elm Grove determined to build a building in which to conduct Divine ser- 
vices. Such a building was soon completed, and was dedicated to the glory of God 
on February 4, 1932. Since that date various additions and renovations have been 



38 



made to the original building and properties. Among these have been (1) the addi- 
tion of a vestibule and classrooms (1935); (2) the renovation of interior walls and 
floors, the addition of oil heaters, light fixtures, and 4 class rooms (1950-51); 
(3) the construction of a parsonage (1954); (4) the addition of rest rooms and 
barbecue pit (1962); (5) central heating and interior renovation, the choir loft and 
organ was added (1965); (6) a new steeple and porch added to the building (1967); 
(7) installation of a baptistry and classrooms, and the building was brick- veneered 
(1968); (8) groundbreaking for a new "Activities Building" (1972). 

The following brethren have served as pastors of the Elm Grove Church and con- 
gregation during the first 40 years of her life and worship: George W. Burch, J.O. 
Walton, W.O. Andrews, E.R, Stewart, Roy V. Young, J.B. Hewitt, Howard Smith, 
Roy Campbell, Paul Weaver, and Richard Poyner. "Interim" or "Supply" preaching 
has been done by J.E. Copeland, W.H. Hollowell, Lonnie Sasser, and G.L. Catling. 

With thankful hearts we assess the blessings of the past. With prayer expecta- 
tion we look to the future. We believe that God has given the Elm Grove Baptist 
Church a mission to win the lost to a saving faith in Christ, and to train the saved 
for useful service for their Master.

Dedication 

to 

Mr. and Mrs. Henry W. Stough 

For their faithful and loving service in the Lord's work, and their ministry in the West 
Chowan Baptist Association, this issue of the "Minutes" is gratefully dedicated. 

Henry and "Kay" have contributed greatly to the proclamation of the Word, and have wit- 
nessed faithfully to the Lord, through their teaching, and preaching, and serving in many ways 
to help our churches and our people to be more effective in their own communities. Brother 
Stough has brought up-to-date methods of organization of our work, including an enlarged 
General Board so that every church might have their pastor and a laymember on the Board. 
He led in the organization of committees to deal with every phase and problem of our area, 
and also strengthened the work of our existing organizations. Schools of Missions, Group Stu- 
dy Schools, Associational Rallies, Clinics and Conferences covering every phase of our work 
have been planned. He has preached, taught, and witnessed wherever he has been invited, 
and has personally encouraged our pastors and laymen in their ministries. He has issued 
nearly one thousand bulletins each month, as well as other literature. He has counseled with 
our Associational and Church officers, and has helped whenever possible. He has shown a 
loving and helpful spirit, and we shall always remember his work among us. His work has not 
been limited to our Association, but he has helped throughout our state in the State Conven- 
tion Work, and has represented the Home Mission and Foreign Mission work in North 
Carolina and other states, too. 

"Kay" has also been active as Henry's help mate in many ways, and has also been around in 
most of our churches, teaching the Home and Foreign Mission Books, and assisting the mis- 
sion activities whenever possible. She has also graciously entertained the Executive and other 
committees when they met at her home. 

The Stoughs came to us in 1957 from the Anson Association where he had served as the As- 
sociational Missionary. Previous to that, he had been in pastoral and evangelistic work, in 
many of the states of the Southern Baptist Convention. Coming from a minister's family (his 
father and three brothers were, or are, preachers), he has also had a great interest in missions. 
One daughter, Mrs. "Pat" Henderson has served in Ghana and the Philippines, and while the 
Hendersons were in Ghana, Henry and Kay visited them and were "Foreign Missionaries" for 
about six weeks! 

As an Association, we are grateful that the Lord sent Henry and Kay to us, and we shall con- 
tinue to remember them and to pray for them in their future ministry, wherever they shall be!

Constitution 



NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the West Chowan Baptist Association of North 
Carolina. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of Messengers elected by the churches connected with this 
body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said churches, together with the officers of 
this Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of one hundred mem- 
bers and under shall be entitled to two Messengers, and for each additional one hundred 
members, an additional Messenger, provided that no church shall have more than ten 
messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage, and enlist its mem- 
bership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation, for the promotion of the entire program 
of our denomination; totheendthat the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ might be 
proclaimed with greater power and effectiveness in our Association, our State and Nation, 
and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sovereignty or rights of 
the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor a court of appeal. It may 
advise the churches and recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot 
bind them in any way. There shall be full recognition of the autonomy of the local church and 
there shall be full recognition of the autonomy of the Association. However, in view of the y 
combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest 
consideration and regard for itself, its objects and its recommendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving the design, objects and principles 
of this Association, and holding the same doctrines and ordinances, may be admitted into 
fellowship upon two-thirds vote of the messengers. All applications shall be referred to the 
Membership Committee for study. Church desiring membership should give notice by mak- 
ing application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relation with any church that consistently 
refuses to support the design, objects and principles of the West Chowan Baptist Association. 
Any irregularities which are reported shall be referred to the Membership Committee who will 
report their findings to the next Associational meeting. The relationship may bedissolved by a 
two-thirds vote of the messengers one year after irregularities have been brought to the atten- 
tion of the Association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church shall be requested to contribute a percentage of its gifts, or so much 
per resident member for defraying the expenses of the Association and for direction of the 
promotional, education and missionary work of the Association. This percentage or amount 
shall be sent to the Associational Treasurer monthly by each church Treasurer. 

Article 8. Every church will send to every annual session of the Association a Letter on the 
form adopted by the Association with such additional information as it may deem fitting. 

Article 9. Any church wishing to dissolve its relationship with the Association in order to 
transfer to another association may do so with a majority vote at any regular Associational 
meeting.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL BOARD 

The General Board of the West Chowan Baptist Association met on four occasions this past 
year In the first meeting, December 11th, the following officers were elected: William L. 
Downs, chairman; J. Felton White, vice-chairman; Henry W. Stough, secretary. Besides these 
officers' of the Association, three members-at-large were elected from the General Board to 
serve on the Executive Committee of the General Board. These three men were: Miles S. Baker, 
(Bertie), A. Ray Lassiter, (Hertford) and Tim A. Sellers, (Northampton). The moderator was ask- 
ed to appoint a committee of six to familiarize the churches within the Association of the 
Ridgecrest Property motion which had been passed by the Association in annual session last 
October. In compliance with the wishes of the General Board, the following men were ap- 
pointed to this committee: joe D. McLean, of Jackson, chairman; Earl Vann of Meherrm; Ver- 
non E. Taylor of Rich Square; Robert Spivey of Cashie; R. Lathan Dilday of Ahoskie First; and 
Finley Johnson of Askewville. Also, in keeping with the desire of the Association at the 
ninetieth session, the Survey and Study Committee was asked to make an in-depth study of 



14 



our Associational Work, giving concern to our weaknesses, strengths, points of mutual con- 
cern, aspirations, etc. 

The March 26th meeting of the General Board departed from previous patterns as we in- 
vited Mr. Sam O'Neal of the Department of Retirement Plans of the Baptist State Convention 
to share with us his insights on church involvement in programs of insurance, retirement, and 
health aid for the pastors and other ministers. 

At the June and September meetings we had excellent attendance. This was due to two fac- 
tors: a fine responsive spirit on the part of the members and the use of individualized invita- 
tions which were sent by the Director of Associational Work. The outstanding attendance 
coupled with a change in the format of our meetings brought about two very productive 
meetings. The schedule was altered to accomodate meetings of the standing committees and 
then a time for reports at both sessions. At the last session, the General Board directed the 
Committee on Committees to nominate a Committee on Sunday School Work to assist the 
Associational Sunday School Director. This committee is to have directors in five areas: Out- 
reach, Adult, Youth, Children and Pre-school work. It was good to climax the last meeting of 
the Associational year with a positive and cooperative note of hope. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William L. Downs, chairman 

16. Walter S. Jones, chairman, gave the report of the Committee on Evangelism, which was 
adopted: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON EVANGELISM 

The Committee on Evangelism led in the planning of a "School for Deacons" on November 
5, 1973. We were fortunate in having Dr. Nathan C. Brooks, Nurrell Lucas and Paul Kesterson 
to lead our school. Schools were held in the following three churches: Mars Hill with 50 in at- 
tendance, Winton with 65 in attendance, and Conway with 101 in attendance, making a total 
of 216. 

These three churches made arrangements to serve the evening meal so that an afternoon 
and night session could be held. On behalf of the Evangelism Committee I would like to ex- 
press appreciation to each church for their efforts in making the school a success. 

During the past year the Division of Evangelism employed three young people to work in 
summer revivals. At the Youth Evangelism Conference in Greensboro on August 17th these 
young people gave a good report of their work. Several of our churches shared in the Youth 
Evangelism Conference by providing opportunity for their youth to attend. I hope when the 
Youth Evangelism Conference is held next year, every church will have someone in atten- 
dance. Our youth at Conway usually are more excited about the conference after they have 
been there, than when they are getting ready to go. 

On February 4-6 at the War Memorial Auditorium, we will have our 28th Statewide Evan- 
gelism Conference. I hope pastors will encourage their laymen to attend even if it is only for 
one day. 

Our Committee desires to be of help to the Association. Please let us know how we may 
best serve you. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter S. Jones, Chairman 

17. The Moderator announced that the report of the Missions Committee would be the last 
item of the afternoon session. 

18. The report of the Committee on Education and Promotion was presented by the chair- 
man, Tim A. Sellers, and it was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
EDUCATION AND PROMOTION 

The Committee on Education and Promotion met during the times that the General Board 
met, and discussed matters relating to the promotion of our denominational work, including 
our schools, homes and other institutions. We also discussed the work of our Association's 



13 



organizations, and how we could better serve the churches. 

At the June 25th meeting, our connmittee recommended the following activities: (1) that a 
conference for deacons be scheduled for each county in the fall of 1974; (2) that a Clinic for 
"Youth Involvement" be scheduled in order to hear from our young people, and for the 
Youth Counselors to be informed of the views of our youth; (3) that we stress the Church 
Training Theme "Church: The Sunday Night Place"; (4) that we schedule a three-day Sunday 
School Teaching Improvement Clinic; (5) that we consider Sunday School Group Schools in 
January 1974, and (6) that we schedule a Stewardship and Finance Clinic. It was also sug- 
gested that we study the matter of a bus ministry for each church where there was a need. 

As the heads of our Association's Organizations are also members of our committee, their 
reports might be considered as a part of the report of this committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Tim A. Sellers, Chairman 

19. The Associate-Director of Sunday School Work, Vincent Young presented the "Sunday 
School Report" of the Director who left the Association on October 1st. Mr. Young added 
that some plans might be changed during the coming year. The report was adopted. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The available statistics relating to the Sunday Schools within the West Chowan Baptist As- 
sociation indicate a loss of Sunday School enrollment, and average attendance. In 1969, the 
total enrollment of the Sunday Schools in our Association was 11,011. In 1970 it dropped to 
10,568. The next year this had dropped to 10,041, and last year the total enrollment dropped to 
a new low of 9,808. When comparing the Sunday School reports of 1970 to those of 1972, it 
was discovered that 39 of our 60 churches showed a loss in both Sunday School enrollment 
and average attendance. Only 7 churches of the 60 showed an increase in both Sunday 
School enrollment and average attendance. These statistics should alert us to the growing 
need for a strong Sunday School program in our churches. 

In the past year the Associational Sunday School Department provided the following helps 
for our churches: 

TEACHER IMPROVEMENT CLINIC. On January 29-31, a Teacher Improvement Clinic was 
held at the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie. Age-group conferences were conducted by capa- 
ble instructors from the Baptist State Convention. 33 churches were represented with an 
average attendance of 176. 

Someone has said, "Poor teaching can empty a classroom faster than an Outreach (Visita- 
tion) Program can fill it." We need to encourage our teachers to get all of the training available 
to them, therefore, this year we are planning another Teacher Improvement Clinic and hope 
to have 100% participation from our churches. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REVIVAL. On February 15, 1973, at the First Baptist Church in Ahoskie, 
we observed a Sunday School Revival. Those attending this meeting found it instructional as 
well as inspirational. 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL CLINICS. On January 3-5, 8 people from our Association at- 
tended the State Vacation Bible School Clinic at Wingate College to learn of the new techni- 
ques for 1973. There they became familiar with the new literature and resource kits. On April 
3rd at the Bethany Church, and on April 10th al the Galatia Church, these instructors led age- 
group conferences for our Associational Vacation Bible School Clinics. 49 churches were 
represented with a total attendance of 137. 

Our Associational Vacation Bible School Director, R. Vincent Young, is seeking workers to 
attend the State Vacation Bible School Clinic at Wingate College in January. We are planning 
two VBS Clinics again in 1974, and because we believe these returning workers will have 
much to offer, we hope to have 100% participation of the churches next year. 

RIDGECREST. Your Associational Sunday School Director attended the Ridgecrest Con- 
ference Center for the Sunday School Conference, July 28-August 3. This conference gave him 
an opportunity to learr> more about Sunday School Work, and by conferring with other direc- 
tors, learned of some things that have helped in other associations. 

During 1974, we hope to conduct a "People to People" Survey of our Association. We 
believe that in order to reach people for Christ we must first find them. Then to provide con- 
tinued help for the age-group workers in the individual Sunday Schools, we want Associ- 
ational Department Directors to help guide the work. To accomodate this, I have asked the 



16 



Association's Committee on Committees to add to this Committee of Sunday School Officers 
to their report: Outreach Director, Adult Director, Youth Director, Childrens' Director, and 
Preschool Director. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Richard R. Poyner, Director 

20. "The Church Training Report" was presented by the Director Walter F. Hill, who also 
urged each church to have some kind of a "Training" and a "Youth" program. The report was 
adopted. 

CHURCH TRAINING DEPARTMENT REPORT 

This has been a good year for Church Training in our Association. More churches are plan- 
ning on some types of a training program during the coming year. This year we have helped in 
the organization of some new departments. There are 17 Training Unions reported last year. 
This is not a true picture of the Church Training Program that is going on in our churches. We 
hope that this coming year the message can be carried across to our churches that a Church 
Training Program consists of those training periods, which the churches are doing on other 
times than on Sunday night. We believe that most of our churches are doing some special 
types of training, but are failing to report it in the letter to the Association. We urge you to re- 
think your Church Training Program. Let us help you! 

We are looking forward to an exciting year with training classes for each local church if we- 
are invited to come. A Church Training Workshop and a Church Administration Workshop 
are being planned. Yes, it is exciting to think how we shall advance together in a more effec- 
tive Christian Witness in our Churches and Community. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter F. Hill, Director 

21. Robert C. White, Associational Royal Ambassador Leader, presented the report on 
Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador, and both reports were adopted. 

REPORT OF ROYAL AMBASSADOR WORK 

The West Chowan Association held it's "Boys Rally" at the Center Grove Church on March 
20th, and there were 71 Boys and Counselors present. Mr. Phil Royce of Chowan College 
presented an interesting program on State Missions. Associational Royal Ambassador Officers 
were elected to serve during the year and to help in planning next year's Boys Rally. This was a 
first for our Association. Elected were: Walter Ronnie White, president, of Askewville; Michael 
Dean Harrell, vice-president, of Ross; George Williams, secretary, of Connaritsa. 

The next big event for the R.A.'s was the Association Track Meet, which was held at 
Chowan College. There were about 40 in attendance, and Royal Ambassadors from two 
churches went on to compete in the State R.A. Track Meet held at Gardner-Webb College in 
May. The churches represented at the State Track Meet were Early's and Connaritsa. 

In June, the Brotherhood, under the direction of Raleigh White, entertained the R.A.'s with 
an outing at Raleigh's Beach on the Chowan River. 

Many of our churches do not have an R.A. organization. We would encourage your church 
to start a program for the boys in your community, starting out with boys in Grades 1 through 
3 as a goal for the new church year. If I can be of any assistance, please call on me. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert C. White, 
Associational R.A. Leader 

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD DEPARTMENT 

Brotherhood Work in our Association is growing, slowly but steadily, as the men are getting 
more interested in missions, at home and away. We have had some new Brotherhoods, and 



17 



some work with the Royal Ambassadors is being increased, Some of our churches have work 
with the Royal Ambassadors and no Brotherhood, and some churches have Brotherhoods but 
no work with the boys. We have one Royal Ambassador work which is sponsored by the 
Woman's Missionary Union. 

Robert C. White has been serving as Royal Ambassador Counselor for the Association, and 
has been a great help, encouraging the Royal Ambassador Week, November 6-11, 1972; a 
Royal Ambassador Track Meet at Chowan College in April and the State Track Meet at 
Gardner-Webb College where some of our boys competed; and a "Man-Boy Outing" in June 
at a beach on Chowan River. He has also encouraged men in other churches to start R.A, 
Work. 

Our Brotherhood Officers met three times during the year to plan our work, and discuss 
our "opportunities", they also attended an Area Planning Meeting in Edenton, and some went 
to Eagle Eyrie in Virginia for a special conference. Brotherhood Men and Royal Ambassador 
Boys attended the Convention in Winston-Salem; over 50 attended from several churches. 

We urge each church to elect a "Brotherhood Director", even if they do not have a Brother- 
hood organization. This will give an opportunity to contact an interested man in your church 
so that we might get a Brotherhood or a Royal Ambassador work started. 

Our plans for 1973-1974 are not definite as yet, but we will try to plan events that will be 
helpful to your church, and to the Lord's work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William Raleigh White, Director 



22. Robert F. Dills, Director of the Music Department, presented the report, and it was 
adopted. 



REPORT OF THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT 



Due to the enthusiastic interest and faithful service of voluntary choir directors and mem- 
bers, church music in the West Chowan Association, over the past few years, has grown 
numerically and musically. Last year 46 churches reported a total music enrollment of 1,523. 
These reports show an increase of 102 over the previous year. 

On January 22-24, our Associational Music Ministry sponsored a workshop for high school 
youth and adults. 13 churches from our Association participated. The school enjoyed an 
enrollment of 94 and an average attendance of 78 for the three nights. Special guests included 
Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Hill from Scotland Neck, and Mr. Billy Raynor of Ahoskie. 

The Regional Choir Festival was held in the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie on February 26. 
Three choirs from that church participated, along with other groups from Edenton, Elizabeth 
City and Scotland Neck. The Regional Festivals are sponsored by the State Convention. We 
urge more of our churches to take part in this yearly project. It is a tremendous source of 
growth and encouragement. 

The Music Department expresses their gratitude for your support and cooperation. Please 
call on us for any assistance, information or suggestions that you may need. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert F. Dills, Director

RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. We recommend that each church contribute at least 10% more to the work of the Asso- 
ciation, than the church gave in 1973. 

2. We recommend that the Association make an application for $1,000.00 to the Baptist 
State Convention for a supplement to the salary. It is understood, however, that in any event 
the salary will be the amount stated in the budget. 

(This proposed Budget for 1974 was approved by the General Board on Monday, September 
24th, and is recommended to the Association.) 

26. The Director of the Association's Work, Henry W. Stough presented "The Calendar for 
1974", which was adopted, subject to such changes as may be made from time to time.

27. The Director also presented his report of activities, which included his resignation, 
effective January 31, 1974. He made some closing remarks, expressing his appreciation for the 
love and cooperation which had been extended to him by the churches and the members, 



23 



and asked that Mrs. Stough stand with him. She also expressed her gratitude for the oppor- 
tunity to serve with her husband for these seventeen full years in the Association. A motion 
was made to accept the report, and also to accept Mr. Stough's resignation. In answer to an 
inquiry, the Moderator explained that due to the action of the Executive Committee of the 
General Board, that he had appointed a Committee of Three to arrange a special meeting to 
show the Association's appreciation of the ministry of the Stoughs, and that announcement of 
this would be made at a later date. 

The Director also presented a gavel to the Moderator, made from the tree on the birthplace 
of Dr. George W. Truett, with an appropriate inscription. The Moderator accepted it on behalf 
of the Association. 

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF THE ASSOCIATION AL WORK 

This has been a busy year for all phases of our Associational Work, as we sought to 
strengthen the work of our churches in the teaching of the Bible through our Sunday Schools, 
and encouraging our churches to have a meaningful training program, and seeking to enlist 
our men and boys in mission study and mission action. A "Teacher Improvement Clinic" in 
January, a "School of Music" also in January, a "Baptist Mens' Rally" and a "Royal Ambassador 
Boys' Rally" in March, Vacation Bible School Clinics in April, and other meetings throughout 
the year were planned and held to lead our people into a better understanding of God's will 
for our lives, and how our churches can best serve Him in their communities. 

In my ministry, I have tried to be helpful whenever called upon, whether to teach or 
preach, or to hold conferences, or meet with committees, or help churches find pastors, or 
issue "THE WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST" bulletin each month, or carry on voluminous corres- 
pondence with churches and persons within and outside of the Association. Many are the re- 
quests that come from our State and Southern Baptist Leaders for help in presenting their 
causes to our churches; the Home and Foreign Mission Boards are constantly sending 
materials for us to circulate in our area. Many times I have felt overwhelmed by the amount of 
these requests, and I have found out that only so much can be used. Each year, however, I dis- 
tribute about 1,000 bulletins a month to our people, and drive about 25,000 miles to keep in 
touch with them personally. 

At the last of next January (1974), I will complete 17 full years as your servant, and at this 
time I want to present my resignation, effective the first of February. These have been wonder- 
ful years with you, and Mrs. Stough and I have enjoyed very much our ministry with you, and 
so it is with deep regret that we tender our resignations, but we feel as we have reached the 
retirement age (and then some!) that it is best for us, and best for you, for this will enable you 
to get another worker who may be able to do a lot of things that we have not been able to do. 
We wish that we could express our love to each one of you personally, for you have meant so 
much to us. We covet your prayers for us, as we seek to continue to serve the Lord, for we will 
be available for interim-pastorates, or supply preaching, or wherever the Lord can use us. 

As a token of our love, we wish to present this gavel to the Association, to be used from 
time to time in the meetings. The blackwalnut wood came from the birthplace of Dr. George 
W. Truett in Hayesville, N. C. We trust that this will be a tangible evidence of our affection and 
regard which we have for the West Chowan Association, with whom we have served these 
seventeen wonderful years. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry W. Stough, Director 

28. Bob J. Traywick, who had served the past six months as chairman of the "Missions 
Committee" presented the report, which was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

The Missions Committee met four times during the year. The former chairman of the com- 
mittee left the Association and the present chairman met with the committee only twice. Dur- 
ing these two meetings, we discussed the work being done by different churches at the Nurs- 
ing Homes, Rest Homes, and the Correction Centers. We ilso discussed the possibility of 
bringing back to life the Radio Ministry, and the Hospital Ministry. 



24 



The feeling of those attending the two meetings toward the end of the church year was that 
we need to experience more involvement not only to help others, but as an Association, we 
need to be more active in local mission projects. 

Plans are under way to afford us opportunities to aid in a work with migrant workers in Rich 
Square. These plans are only in the talking stage and we solicit your prayers and cooperation. 

The Missions Committee discussed ways to involve our young people in local mission 
projects. There are several avenues of Bible distribution in our area. Bibles can be obtained at 
reduced rates and, in some cases, free of charge, depending on the intended use. 

Perhaps we have not been aware of the changes taking place around us in the last few 
years. We do have more people, new industries, trailer parks, and a greater opportunity to 
sponsor a ministry to those spending the summer on the Chowan River. The committee urges 
every church to have eyes that see and ears that hear, and take advantage of all opportunities. 
What will Bertie, Hertford and Northampton Counties do in 1973 — 1974? 

Respectfully submitted, 
- ' ^ Bob J. Traywick, Chairman 

29. Joe D. McLean was recognized and read a statement from Harold L. Rumfelt, pastor of 
the Rich Square Church, and a member of the Missions Committee; 

"Most of you are aware that there is located in Rich Square a Family Training Center for the 
purpose of re-directing the lives of the residents, composed of about 50 migrant farm-working 
families. 

Because the Center property is owned by the Federal Government, there can be no 
religious programs of a denominational nature conducted on the Center grounds. 

For the past 18 months, I have been talking with the administration of the Center to find a 
way or ways whereby a Baptist oriented program could be offered to these people. 

On August 28, 1973, I appealed to the Executive Committee of the West Chowan Baptist As- 
sociation for help. It was agreed that we should ask the Department of Cooperative Ministries 
of the Baptist State Convention for an evaluation of the situation and recommendations. On 
September 10, Mr. Corbin Cooper, secretary of the Department, made a visit to Rich Square 
and made the following suggestions. 

1. That the West Chowan Baptist Association provide a mobile unit on free property adja- 
cent to the Center. 

2. That the Missions Committee of the West Chowan Association in cooperation with a 
committee from the Northampton Baptist Association plan and supervise a program of 
religious services in keeping with the ideals of the Associations and the needs of the people 
there. 

3. That if the Associations would do this, thereby showing a local concern, the Department 
could provide summer personnel for a full-time summer program. 

Therefore I recommend that the West Chowan Association purchase a mobile unit to be 
placed in Rich Square at a cost not to exceed $4,000.00 

I further recommend that the Missions Committee of the West Chowan Association in 
cooperation with a committee of the Northampton Baptist Association be charged with the 
planning and operation of this project." 

A motion was made and seconded, and after some discussion, a further recommendation 
was made by Billy Mobley, and was included in the motion in order to expedite the matter. 

"When the West Chowan Association has in hand enough cash and/or pledges equal to the 
purchase price of the mobile chapel, then the Missions Committee may proceed to purchase 
it, included in this amount would be an operational budget for a year." 

After some voluntary pledges of support and money from the congregation, the motion was 
passed unanimously. 

30. After a few explanatory remarks, Donald L. Clinton, pastor of the Winton Church pro- 
nounced a benediction and asked God's blessings on the evening meal. 

31. The messengers, officers and visitors enjoyed a catered meal served by the Creeksville, 
jackson, and Winton Churches, and had a fine fellowship on the church grounds. 

Evening Session 
7:30 p.m. 

32. After a musical prelude, the Moderator called the evening session to order at 7:30 p.m., 
which had the theme "Rightly Dividing The Word of Truth." 



25 



33. Lemar Wheeler, pastor of the Woodland Church led in the worship period, reading a 
portion of scripture and leading in prayer. 

34. "A History of the Winton Baptist Church" was read by Harry B. Ward, clerk. The history, 
a picture of the church building, and a picture of the pastor are included. 




WINTON BAPTIST CHURCH DONALD L. CLINTON, PASTOR 



WINTON BAPTIST CHURCH 

, : ^ 1873—1973 

"God willing, and the creek don't rise" is a phrase we have heard all our lives. According to 
tradition handed down for four generations in the Winton Baptist Church, the rising and slow 
falling of the Potecasi Creek hundred years ago was one of the factors that spurred Baptists liv- 
ing in Winton, and others south and east of the creek who were members of Mt. Tabor 
Church, to part from that worthy parent in 1873 to organize the Winton Baptist Church. A 
subscription list dated 1874 lists 22 male members of the new church and indicates that the 
pastor was paid $116.25 for the year. Elder John Mitchell was that first pastor, and he served 
for two years. He was succeeded by Elder Thomas G. Wood who served the church for 12 
years. 

The lot now known as the "Old Church Lot" was deeded on July 7, 1873 by John W. Faison 
and his wife Rosalena to the Winton Baptisi Church. The trustees were John A. Vann, 
Adolphus Godwin, Luke McGlauhon and Cherry Dunning. The last known written record for 
the 1870's is a list of 38 male members, dated 1875. We do not know when the church build- 
ing was constructed. 

On July 27, 1883, a meeting was held at this church to organize the West Chowan Baptist 
Association, within the bounds of the Bertie Union Meeting, and parting from the parent 
Chowan Association. Brother W. M. Mitchell was called to chair the meeting and Brother 
W. C. Parker was elected clerk. An appointed committee recommended that the first meeting 
be held in Windsor at Cashie Baptist Church on Tuesday after the second Sunday in October 
1883. 

Winton Baptist Church was one of the first in the Association to break with the old custom 
of worship services only once a month; services twice a month became customary. 

In 1895 there was a division in the Winton Baptist Church. The Chowan Baptist Church was 
organized with 47 members, and it was received into the West Chowan Baptist Association in 



26 



October of the same year. The first pastor of this new church was the Rev. Samuel Sanders. 

The Chowan Baptist Church building was built in 1901 or 1902. William Jordan and his wife, 
Ella; A. I. Parker and his wife Martha, for $200.00, deeded, on November 16, 1901, the Jordan 
and Parker old store lot to the church trustees Thomas Deane Boone, Henry B. Vann, J. H. 
Matthews and George A. Brown. The deed indicates the church already stood on the lot in 
company with part of the old Anderson graveyard. 

The first parsonage owned by the Chowan Baptist Church was purchased in 1 905 for $1000. 
from Samuel Reed and his wife Emma. 

The Winton Baptist Church and the Chowan Baptist Church met in a joint assembly at the 
former church building on January 29, 1917, for the purpose of uniting the two churches. 
After proper action, the decision was made that the united church should be known as the 
Winton Baptist Church and that worship services would be held in the Chowan Baptist 
Church building. Brother S. N. Watson was called as pastor to a combined membership of 273 
souls. 

The old Winton church building was sold in 1924 to E. L. Jenkins & Son for $275.00. 

The first deaconessess were elected in the Winton Church on January 21, 1923; they were 
Mrs. W. D. Boone, Mrs. W. R. Daniel, Mrs. J. S. Mitchell and Mrs. H. H. Jones. 

Since 1902, the building has been greatly improved with the addition of class rooms, 
restrooms, and a new parsonage was built in 1956. In 1972 and 1973 more classrooms, a 
vestibule and porch were added, and the auditorium re-decorated, re-furnished and carpeted. 

The West Chowan Baptist Association met in the Winton Church in 1887 and in 1911. It is 
with pride that we welcome the Association, after62 years, in 1973 — and in faith we look for- 
ward to further accomplishments from the Lord in concert with the Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry B. Ward and Miss Louise Vann Boone

Coppedge, which was accepted and the members duly elected.

nates, 28 pastors, and 57 visitors enrolled, or a total of 225 present. 

43. After a motion to adjourn was carried, the benediction was pronounced by Jack P. 
Morgan of the Lasker Church. - v. 



CONNARITSA BAPTIST CHURCH 

Wednesday Morning, October 24th, 1973 

" If ye continue in My Word, then are ye My disciples indeed; and ye shall know the 

Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." (John 8:31, 32) 

44. After a musical prelude by Mrs. C. E. Baker, organist of the Connaritsa Church, the 
Moderator called the meeting to order at 10 a.m. 

45. The worship period was led by Ronald E. Richardson, pastor of the Riverside Church,

27 



47. An impressive memorial service was conducted by Clyde Francis with appropriate

tinue in His Word, To be a disciple or learner. To know the Truth, and then only to become 
free." 

50. The association then sang, "A Charge To Keep I Have". 

51. The moderator then introduced Dr. Bruce E. Whitaker, President of Chowan College 
who gave a report about the Chowan College, and the problems of all of our colleges. 

52. The clerk moved that the Report on Baptist Christian Higher Education" be adopted. 
The motion carried. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

The six Baptist Colleges and Wake Forest University continue to strive to serve the cause of 
Christian Higher Education, with a particular responsibility to and a gratitude for the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina. Each institution recognizes a primary obligation for serv- 
ing qualified youth from the Baptist Churches of the state, and — in this regard is working 
through the Office of the Council of Christian Higher Education in securing the names of 
prospective students through the pastors of the churches. Each of the six colleges and the 
university are more conscious than ever of the significance of the financial support received 
from the Baptists of the state, even though the amount of support received in every case 
represents but a small fraction of the actual operating budget of each institution. 

The release of enrollment figures for the fall term 1973 will underscore one very significant 
fact; the days of burgeoning enrollments are past history. While particular campuses may 
show slight increases in total enrollment from year-to-year, the "boom" in the growth of col- 
leges appears to be over for the foreseeable future. The competition for students becomes 
more keen as the available student "market" declines. A host of factors are at work contribut- 
ing to this current decline in the number of high school graduates who are interested in 
pursuing higher education. 

Baptist Colleges have to compete with all other colleges and universities in attracting stu- 
dents to their campuses. The cost differential which continues to maintain between Baptist 
(or any other "private") colleges and state-supported institutions makes the normal competi- 
tion even more keen. It is at this point that the churches — and individual Baptists among 
them — can be of tremendous aid to their institutions of Christian higher education. In the first 
place, if Baptist young people are to be attracted to Baptist institutions. Baptist churches. Bap- 
tist pastors, and Baptist counselors must take the initiative in acquainting Baptist youth with 
their denominational colleges. Each of the seven institutions — along with the Council on 
Christian Higher Education — will go far beyond the "second mile" in aiding churches or pas- 
tors or counselors in this endeavor. The provision of informative materials, college personnel, 
and program services are available for the asking — given the existing schedules and respon- 
sibilities of college personnel. 

In the second place, the cost gap between private and public education can only be bridg- 
ed through increased support for operational purposes. It is both unwise and unrealistic to ex- 
pect significant increase through the channels of the Cooperative Program. Such support will 
increase, to be sure! But such increases will do well to keep pace with escalating costs. If the 
gap is to be bridged, it will have to be accomplished, primarily, through those churches and 
individual Baptists who envision this need and rise to meet it through gifts, trusts, and be- 
quests. 

As regards Chowan College — which is the college of the West Chowan Baptist Association 
in a special sense, the academic year 1973-1974 has been a very good one to this point. Both 
students and faculty are approaching their tasks with seriousness of purpose. The MISSION 
POSSIBLE campaign has been successful in reaching the goal of $1,000,000.00 in gifts and/or 
pledges towards the cost of construction of a new science-engineering facility. The building is 
nearing completion, and will be ready for occupancy at the beginning of the spring term. 

Various individuals and organizations continue to welcome the opportunity to be of serv- 
ice to the churches and the larger community to which the college is related. Please call upon 



28 



the appropriate college personnel for any type of service which you think may be available to 
you. If the college cannot meet your specific request at the time you make it, she will be glad 
to be of assistance in helping to find the right resources for your need.

53. Joe D. McLean, chairman of the Ridgecrest Property Committee, in making his report 
said, "In the light of these facts: (1 ) on Tuesday, October 26, 1971, Dr. and Mrs. R. Kelly White 
donated a one-acre lot near Ridgecrest, N.C. to the West Chowan Baptist Association and the 
Association messengers accepted the gift with the understanding that the Association would 
build a house on the lot in the future; (2) on Wednesday, October 25, 1972, the Association 
messengers voted "that the Association request each church in the Association to voluntarily 
pay into the Association $.75 per resident member per year for three years" for the building of 
a cottage at Ridgecrest; and (3) on Tuesday, October 23, 1973, the Association's Treasurer re- 
port indicated that only two of the Association's churches have contributed any money to the 
Ridgecrest fund, and the total amount contributed is $415.00; we make the following recom- 
mendations to the Association: 

The Ridgecrest Property Committee recommends that the West Chowan Baptist Associ- 
ation return ownership of the one-acre Ridgecrest lot to Dr. and Mrs. R. Kelly White with gra- 
titude for their generosity and with regret that most of our churches have not responded 
positively to the request to provide funds for the building of a cottage on the property. We 
further recommend that the funds which have been received for the cottage be returned to 
the churches which gave them, and also that any interest which has accrued be added to the 
refunds on a pro rata basis." 

54. After some discussion, Bennie Pledger moved that we postpone action on this matter 
for a year. The motion carried. 

55. After some more discussion, lack Mace moved that the General Board take this matter 
under advisement for one more year, so that the churches might know more about the mat- 
ter. The motion was carried, and referred to the Executive Committee of the Board. 

56. In the absence of the Chairman of the Committee on History, the clerk presented the 
report, with some further remarks that each church is requested to write a history of the 
church, and send it to the Baptist Collection in the Chowan College Library, so that a History 
of the Association can be written at a later date. The report was adopted. 



REPORT OF HISTORY COMMITTEE 

In less than three years we will be in the midst of the observance of our National Bicenten- 
nial. The Sesquicentennial of our Baptist State Convention of North Carolina is less than a 
decade away (1980). These are quite significant anniversaries, which might well provide im — 
petus for a renewed interest in our heritage as Baptists in Eastern North Carolina. Are we 
aware of the contributions of Baptists — including Eastern North Carolinians — to the shaping 
of the Constitution in post — revolutionary days? Do we know just how much the Old 
Chowan Association (from which the West Chowan was born) meant in the life and strug- 
geles of the infant Baptist State Convention? Have we more than a vague notion of the events 
which have transpired among us over the last century? 

The West Chowan Baptist Association ought to take some definite measures towards ap- 
propriate recognition and celebration of each of the anniversaries mentioned above. 
Churches need to give greater attention to the keeping and preservation of their own records 
for the sake of future historians, if not to the actual writing of particular historical narratives. 
Individual Baptists among us need to be despoiled of the notion that "history is dry", as they 
become robed in the awareness that history has made us who we are! 

In these regards, certain of our churches and many individual Baptists within them have 
had occasion to be reminded of and to rejoice in their heritage through anniversaries. The 
following have reached (or will reach) significant "birthdays" m 1973: Kelford, (75th), Winton 
(100th), Murfreesboro (125th), and Robert's Chapel (125th). The Murfreesboro Church plans 
an all-day celebration on Sunday, November 11th, with a newly prepared history of the 
church to be released on that date. Ashley's Grove, which observed her Golden Anniversary 
with the preparation of a history in 1959, has updated that account to March 1973. 



29 



Your History Committee would welcome receipt of other "events" in the churches which 
are indicative of the awareness of our history and heritage, as well as any suggestions with 
regard to the furtherance of the Committee's work and function. 

Respectfully submitted, 
R. Hargus Taylor, Chairman 

57. The messengers then sang, "Hark, the Voice of )esus Calling", after which the modera- 
tor thanked Mrs. Arba S. Godwin of the Center Grove for playing the organ when Mrs. Baker 
was called home on account of sickness. 

58. R. Tom Greene was then introduced by Bennie E. Pledger. Mr. Greene, a former pastor 
in the Association, and later the "Associational Missionary", now the Director of Cooperative 
Program Promotion of the State Convention, spoke on "The Cooperative Program and the As- 
sociation." 

59. "O, Zion Haste" was sung by the messengers. 

60. Millard F. Hall, pastor of the Creech Memorial Church, gave the benediction and asked 
God's blessings on the food which was prepared by the Askewville, Connaritsa and Hortons 
Baptist Church, and we adjourned for lunch. 

Afternoon Session 
1:15 p.m.

61. After a musical prelude, the moderator called the session to order at 1:15 p.m. 

62. James E. Branch of the Bethany-Ross Churches led in our devotions by reading Romans 
12:1-21, and leading in prayer. 

63. The moderator recognized Leonard Gerrald who brought greetings from our

64. "A History of the Connaritsa Church" was read by Clyde Francis. A picture of the 
church building, and the pastor, Robert C. White was included in the report. 




HISTORY OF CONNARITSA BAPTIST CHURCH 

1789—1973 

The Connaritsa Baptist Church was constituted in 1789 with members from the Sandy Run 
Baptist Church in Roxobel, N.C. and other neighboring churches joining with the people of 



30 



the community of Connaritsa. Our Church obtained its name from the chief of an Indian 
tribe, who were settled around this community. 

The church was formerly located about 1 mile from its present location, the structure being 
a log one. 

It would be interesting to us to know how many and who were its charter members. But, 
few in number, they may have been, firm was their foundation in the ♦'aith, that where a few 
gathered in God's name, there He will be also. Only a church, or any other institution, found- 
ed on such faith, and with such strong courage could have weathered the physical, financial 
and spiritual storms of life or remained unshaken by the influence of changing times and ideas 
through One Hundred and Eighty-Four Years, 

According to its records the membership of the church in 1851, was 257; 62 white male 
members; 140 white female members; 19 colored male members and 36 female colored mem- 
bers. 

There is mention in the church record in june 1852, that the debt for the new meeting 
house was all paid. So it is assumed that by this time the church was a frame structure and lo- 
cated at its present site. Among the pioneer builders and spiritual leaders of this time, we find 
those constituting the Connaritsa Baptist Church, The Reverend Harvey ). White, George 
Williford, Wiley Dunning, Thomas Hoggard, jermiah Bunch and others that came and served 
too numerous to mention in this short report of such an institution. 

In January 1872, thirty-two letters of dismission were granted for the purpose of organizing 
and constituting a new church at Dudley's Grove (now Oak Grove) in Hertford County, N.C. 
It has helped many other institutions of Christian Education and Worship to get started, both 
near at home and at distant parts of the state; a few of them being; the Lewiston Baptist 
Church, 1883 the Aulander Baptist Church, 1886 and churches at Roanoke Island, Rocky 
Mount, Farmville, Brunswick County, Wake Forest, and the colored church at Conoconary. 
Especially near its heart has always been Wake Forest College, Chowan College, and Meredith 
College. The church has been generous in contributions for medical aid, hospital care for its 
sick and helping its less fortunate beloved families. The records show over a period of one 
hundred years, that there were no conferences held and dismissed without a collection for 
the poor. 

In 1890 the church held its Centennial Celebration, a brief account of the celebration was 
written by Brother Andrew Dunning and attached to the church records. Brother Dunning 
stated the entire membership with many sister churches assembled with the largest congrega- 
tion that ever met on the grounds, estimated to be between twenty-five hundred and three 
thousand. Everyone was bountifully fed and there was enough provisions left over to feed the 
same crowd again. The day was greatly enjoyed by all present and long to be remembered. 

During the period of 1890 and 1904 the old church was torn down and entirely new build- 
ing was built and on the second Sunday in August 1904, Reverend M. Parker of Durham 
preached the dedication sermon. 

During the period of 1904 thru May 1945, the church grew both spiritually and materially, 
and was heavenly blessed with some outstanding pastors. During this time World War II was 
fought and in this war Connaritsa had many young men to answer the call to the colors of 
their country, but was very fortunate in having only one (Brother Homer Lassiter) to pay the 
supreme price, that of giving his life in defense of his country. 

For the next twenty years our church moved along smoothly under the pastorate of the 
following men: the Revs. Lonnie Sasser, |. M. Singletary, George Reynolds, Richard Wynne, 
Floyd Helms, H. Harold Heath, Russell C. Cutchins, B. C. Akers, Nelson P. Vinson and in 1968, 
Herman T. Dilday. 

Under the leadership of Mr. Dilday, the church progressed steadily. Six additional 
classrooms were finished upstairs, a complete new water system, complete new kitchen, in- 
side rest rooms, carpeting, and pulpit remodeling, and a baptistry. 

April 4, 1971 brought a special dedicatory service, when the church was presented and ac- 
cepted new pulpit furniture, the Lord's supper table and chairs, as well as a complete altar set 
to include Bible stand, offering plates, flower vases, etc. 

During our morning service on Mother's day. May 14, 1972, word was received from the 
Roanoke-Chowan Hospital that our Pastor Herman T. Dilday had been called home to be 
with God; that was a day that will be remembered by all. 

Our present Pastor, the Robert C White accepted a call to Connaritsa, on November 1, 
1972, and under his leadership much progress has been made both spiritually and materially. 
The establishment of the John A. Tumblin chapter of the Royal Ambassadors, Girls-in-Action 
groups as well as other youth activities, has brought spiritual blessing to us at Connaritsa. The 



31 



parsonage has been refurbished, sidewalks, and stoops as well as a front porch for the church 
is in the progress of being completed. With him as our leader we will endeaver to do great 
things for God, and we will expect great things from God. 

65. The chairman of the Ordinations Committee, Dr. W. D. Morris, presented a report of 
the committee which was accepted. 

REPORT OF THE ORDINATIONS COMMITTEE 

At the request of the Riverside Baptist Church, a presbytery of ordained ministers was called 
together to examine Tim Mizelle for the Gospel Ministry. Members of the presbytery were Dr. 
W. D. Morris, chairman, of the Earlys and Mt. Carmel Churches; D. H. McCollough of the First 
Church, Lewiston; D. J. Robinson, retired minister; Coleman E. Thomas and Adron A. Modiin, 
former pastors of the Riverside Church; Bennie E. Pledger of the Colerain Church; Billy T. 
Mobley of the First Church, Ahoskie; Henry W. Stough, Director of the West Chowan Associ- 
ation, and Ronald Richardson pastor of the Riverside Church. Also invited to attend were 
Clarence W. Williams, chairman of the Board of Deacons of the Riverside Church, and Gary 
McCollough, a licensed minister of the First Church, Lewiston, so that they might listen in on 
the proceedings. 

Dr. W. D. Morris, D. H. McCollough, and D. ). Robinson are also members of the Commit- 
tee on Ordination of the West Chowan Baptist Association. The presbytery met on August 
14th, 1973. 

Tim Mizelle was born N ovember 10, 1949, and attended the Riverside Church where he was 
saved and called to the ministry. At present he is serving the Pleasant Grove Church, who has 
asked the Riverside Church to ordain him. 

After a thorough examination and friendly discussion with him, Tim gave a good account of 
his Christian experience and his calling to the Gospel Ministry, and also satisfactorily 
answered questions concerning his doctrinal beliefs and how he would serve as a Minister of 
the Gospel. 

The presbytery then unanimously recommended that the church proceed with the ordina- 
tion, which took place on Sunday evening, September 2nd at the Riverside Church. 

66. Tim A. Sellers, Director of the Seminary Extension Work, and chairman of the commit- 
tee submitted his report, which was accepted by the Association. 

SEMINARY EXTENSION COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Seminary Extension Committee met on Friday, February 9, 1973 at 8 p.m. at the College 
Inn Restaurant in Murfreesboro. All members were present. We discussed how we could pro- 
mote the work of the Seminary Extension in our churches. We decided to send two copies of 
the Seminary Extension booklet, "Invitations to Learning, Course Descriptions and Continu- 
ing Education Materials", along with a letter of explanation, to each pastor in the Association. 

This letter invited each church and pastor to contact any member of the Committee if there 
were individuals interested in enrolling in a Seminary Extension Course of Bible Study or 
Christian Training, There were some responses, but not enough to warrant an Extension Class 
to be established. 

In the coming year, we shall be glad to assist any church or individuals in holding a Semin- 
ary Extension Class and/or Center in their area. 

' Respectfully submitted, 

Tim A. Sellers, Chairman 



67. The Committee on Membership gave its report by Walter S. )ones, which was adopted. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MEMBERSHIP 

The Committee on Membership was not called upon to act in regards to any irregularities 
during the year 1972-1973. It is happy to report that the Aulander Church rescinded its policy 
on baptism. The General Board commended the Aulander Church on its action, and re- 



32 



quested the Moderator to express the sentiments ot the General Board. A copy of the letter 
from the Moderator to the Aulander Church is included in this report. 

June 26, 1973 

Dear Fellow Christians, 

It is with sentiments similar to those of the Apostle Paul, as he wrote to the Church in 
Thessalonica, that I address this letter — that is, with a spirit of Christian love and joy. We, too, 
have heard of your wonderful Christian spirit and of your labours. Thus this letter is written 
with the same earnest appeal with which Paul wrote his fellow Christians — That this letter be 
read to all the brethren." (I Thess. 5:27) 

On Monday evening, |une 25th, while the General Board of the West Chowan Baptist Asso- 
ciation was in session, your pastor, at my request, made public the action which you took this 
past Sunday morning, relative to the change in your Church Constitution and your policy for 
church membership. 

In a spirit of brotherly love, the Chairman of the Membership Committee of your Associ- 
ation made the motion that the General Board express to you its sincere approval and ap- 
preciation for the action which you have taken, and to do this over my signature as your 
moderator. It is symbolic of our unity as "Children of God, and joint-heirs with Christ", that 
the General Board was unanimous in its endorsement of this motion. (It is also note-worthy 
that this was the most widely attended session of the church year.) 

You can in no wise assess the impact of your recent action upon the fellowship within the 
sixty churches of our Association, nor ultimately upon the fellowship of nearly thirty-four 
hundred other churches in our North Carolina Baptist State Convention. 

The wonderful Christian spirit in which you ALL faced your business session, and your final 
action, is encouraging to your sister churches. You who felt strongly the need for the retention 
of your previous policy, are to be commended by us for the spirit in which you pledged your 
continued support and cooperation within your church. This is indeed a living example of 
Christian unity and fellowship. 

We share with you your joy for your distinguished Vacation Bible School, your plans for a 
new method of evangelism, and your change in the Church Constitution. But more than this, 
we share with you our Christian love and encouragement as "Together We Advance" in the 
service of our Lord with the West Chowan Baptist Association. May God continue to richly 
bless you! 

Your fellow-laborers-in-Christ, 

The General Board of the West Chowan 

Baptist Association, 

William L. Downs, Moderator 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter S. Jones, Chairman 



68. The messengers sang, "We've a Story To Tell to the Nations". 

69. Mrs. Walter S. Jones, Woman's Missionary Union Director gave a report of their work, 
which was adopted.

Mrs. Elsie Lee, Secretary-Treasurer 

70. lack W. Byrd, chairman, gave the report of "The Committee on Christian Life and Public 
Affairs." which was adopted. 



The Committee on the Christian Life and Public Affairs met four times during the year and 
concerned itself mainlywiththeissueofliquorbythedrinktobe voted on N ovember 6, 1973. 
The committee members agreed unanimously that our emphasis against liquor by the drink 
should coincide with the effort being exerted by the local Christian Action League organiza- 
tions in the tri-county area of Bertie, Hertford and Northampton. Furthermore, it was decided 
by our membership that we urge upon all our churches the necessity of making monetary 
contributions to the promotion of the Christian Action League campaign underway. 

Realizing that passage of the referendum, liquor-by-the-drink, would in effect liberalize our 
present liquor laws, making for more liquor outlets and increased consumption by the drink- 
ing public with its accompanying rise in the death toll on the highways, we implore all Chris- 
tians to vote NO on November6th. Furthermore, since alcohol is our number one drug prob- 
lem and its use often leads to alcoholic addiction and deterioration of the physical and moral 
life of man as well as the breakdown of the home, we re-affirm our basic Baptist position that 
our members refrain from the use and sale of all intoxicating beverages. 



Movies rated X are continuing to be viewed by a large segment of our society with very little 
opposition by the Christian Church. Since we as Christians raise no objection and register no 
complaint, the X-rated movie is on the increase in theatres throughout our area of the state. 
Members of the Christian Life and Public Affairs Committee went on record to offer as much 
opposition as we possibly could to this deplorable menace which has a tendency to influence 
and excite our youth to engage in immorality. Law enforcement officers should be encourag- 
ed to check theatres as to theages of those patronizing said establishments. Also, we strongly 
urge all Christian citizens to write the major television networks expressing their opposition to 
rated movies now being viewed on television in the confines of our homes. 



It has come to our attention that some courses now being taught in our public school 
system are of a controversial nature. Some courses appear to be anti-patriotic and anti- 
religious having a tendency to influence our youth to break with our great national traditions 
and time-tested Biblical code of morality. We, therefore, request that local school boards ex- 
ercise great care in selecting said prescribed curriculums in our public schools. 

This report would be amiss without a word of appreciation to those members of the Chris- 
tian Life and Public Affairs Committee who met and gave valuable assistance to that which we 
have been able to do. Theirs is a greatly appreciated contribution.

71. Because of the coming vote on the "Mixed-Beverages" issue, Billy T. Mobley, pastor of 
the First Church, Ahoskie, and Representative of the Christian Action League presented the 
following resolution which was unanimously adopted by the Association. 

"WHEREAS, N. C. citizens will go to the polls on Novembers, 1973 to determine whether 
or not Liquor-by-the-Drink can be sold in North Carolina; 

WHEREAS, according to the Health, Education, Welfare Report of December 1971, on 
"Alcohol and Health", reveals states with by bottle sales only in N.C. have a lower per capita 
consumption rate of liquor than states with by-bottle and by-drink sales; and in fact, N.C. is 
42nd in rank in per capita consumption; 

WHEREAS, greater consumption will result in more alcohol — treated problems especially 
the number of alcoholics and according to the Rutgers University School of Alcoholic Studies, 
N C. ranks 47th in number of alcoholics per 100,000 population; 

WHEREAS, Liquor-by-the-Drink will encourage drinking and driving when we are now told 
by highway experts that in the last three years at least 64% of all highway fatalities reveal the 
evidence of whiskey-at-the-wheel; 

WHEREAS, the proposed referendum does not deal with the "brown-bagging" problem but 
just adds another dimension of the distribution of liquor in N.C; 

WHEREAS, tourism is growing in N.C without liquor-by-the-drink which reveals that this 
matter is not needed in a state where its tourism is family oriented; 

WHEREAS, Liquor-by-the-Drink is basically promoted by those who seek to make fantastic 
profits off of the sale of liquor; 

WHEREAS, our federal government states that liquor is our Number One Drug Problem; 

WHEREAS, Liquor-by-the-Drink will mean more social pressure on young people; 

WHEREAS, Liquor-by-the-Drink is just a foot in the door for open bars; 

WHEREAS, Liquor-by-the-Drink will mean more crime in our community; 

WHEREAS, Liquor-by-the-Drink is usually followed by efforts to legalize gambling; 

Be It Therefore Resolved that the West Chowan Baptist Association meeting in conference 
on October 24, 1973, at the Connaritsa Baptist Church do, hereby, express our opposition to 
Liquor-by-the-Drink and will seek to inform our people with the truth concerning this issue, 
will pledge our financial support; and undergird the Christian Action League with our prayer 
support so that this matter will be defeated on November 6, 1973 in North Carolina." 

72. The messengers sang, "Rise Up, O Men of God" 

73. Jack Mace, chairman, gave the report of the Date, Place and Preacher Committee: 
Spring Association Meeting ("Bertie Union"), Friday, April 26 at the Lawrence Church, with 

the Merry Hill Church assisting.

side Churches assisting. 

In 1976, the second day's session will be at the Potecasi Church, with the St. Johns and 
Lasker Churches assisting. 

The report, with these changes, was adopted. 

74. Thomas H. Caulkins brought the report of the Resolutions Committee which was 
adopted: 

"WHEREAS, the Ninety-first Session of the West Chowan Baptist Association has been an 
informative and stimulating meeting, both in reporting what has transpired within the Associ- 
ation as well as projecting plans for the future, be it resolved that we express our appreciation 
as follows: 

1. To the Creeksville, Jackson, Winton, Askewville, Connaritsa and Hortons Churches for 
their hospitality and fellowship; 

2. To the Program Committee for its work in planning a meeting which has exposed us to 
the broad scope of Baptist life and work; 

3. To all the participants in the meetings for their time and energy in sharing with us them- 
selves and their work; 

4. To the moderator, the officers, leaders, and committees of the Association for their 
leadership throughout the Associational Year and during this session. 

And WHEREAS, the Director of Associational Work, Henry W. Stough, will be retiring Janu- 



38 



dry 31, 1974, after seventeen years of faithful service to the West Chowan Baptist Association, 
be it resolved that we express to him and Mrs. Stough our deepest gratitude and thanksgiving 
for what they have meant to the churches and people of the Association through the years. 
And be it further resolved that we assure them of our prayerful support and concern as, 
though retired, they continue to serve the Lord and work for the advancement of His 
Kingdom." 

75. The Enrollment Committee reported 98 messengers, 17 alternates, 44 pastors, and 81 
visitors, or a total of 220. 

76. Billy Mobley pointed out that this is the first time in many years that Oscar Creech, who 
was moderator from 1946 — 1953, has missed an association meeting due to poor health. The 
clerk was instructed to send a message of greetings. The motion passed. 

77. Jack Mace pointed out that the Director of the Association's Work, Henry W. Stough, 
had resigned on the first day's session, and after a few remarks, made the following motion 
which was passed — "That we refer this matter to the Executive Committee of the General 
Board and that they take whatever action is necessary for study and procuring of a replace- 
ment for our Director of Associational Work." 

78. Robert C. White madethe following motion which was passed unanimously — "That the 
1973 Associational Minutes be dedicated in honor of Rev. and Mrs. Henry W. Stough for their 
seventeen years of faithful and devoted services in our Association." 

79. The Director then presented the Officers of the Association for the coming year. This 
was followed by some closing remarks by the outgoing moderator, William L. Downs. 

80. The new Moderator, Robert B. Spivey was introduced, and brought a brief message 
concerning his desire to serve acceptably and lead the Association to greater service for the 
Lord. 

81. After the messengers and others sang, "Blest BeTheTie", the Ninety-First Session of the 
West Chowan Association was closed with a prayer of benediction by john F. Parker, pastor 
of the Hebron Baptist Church. 



THE SPRING ASSOCIATION MEETING 

(The "Bertie Union Meeting") 

The "Bertie Union Meeting" was held at the Ashley's Grove Church on April 27th, and the 
theme was "Church Membership". The Moderator, William M. Futrell called the meeting to 
order, and the first hymn was led by Joseph S. Polinski of the Edgewood Church. The Scripture 
and Prayer was led by Millard F. Hall, pastor of the Creech Memorial Church. The moderator 
then explained the origin of the "Bertie Union" and extended a welcome to all present. Seven 
new pastors were introduced by Henry W. Stough, Director. 

The moderator appointed the Resolutions and Nominating Committees, and called the roil 
of the churches. There were 27 churches represented, and 75 members present. After the 
hymn "At Calvary", the first message was brought by Gerald B. Reaves, pastor of the Potecasi 
Church who spoke on "Salvation by Grace Only", emphasizing Grace as "God's Redemption 
At Christ's Expense", and is dependent on what Christ has done. 

"The History of the Ashley's Grove Church" was presented by the pastor, Tim A. Sellers, 
stating that the Holly Grove Sunday School was organized in 1892, the church in 1902 with 88 
members. It was later named "Ashley's Grove" in honor of Ashley Liverman, the Sunday 
School man. 

After the congregation sang "Amazing Grace", the Ministers Choral Group brought a special 
number, then Jack P. Morgan, of the Lasker Church, spoke on "The Church Covenant", stating 
that it was a guide for new and old members. Vincent Young, pastor of the Aulander Church, 
pronounced the benediction and the blessing, and we enjoyed a lunch prepared by the 
Ashley's Grove, Hebron, and Margarettsville Churches. 

In the afternoon session, Robert C White of the Connaritsa and Hortons Churches led in 
the devotions and Bennie Pledger, pastor of the Colerain Church spoke on "Preparation for 
Church Membership". After the congregation sang "More Holiness Give Me", Donald L. Clin- 
ton of the Winton and Holly Springs Churches spoke on "Baptist Autonomy and Coopera- 
tion", explaining that each church is independent but voluntarily cooperates through the As- 
sociation and the Conventions, who also are autonomous. 

The Nominating Committee made the following recommendations; Moderator, William M. 
Futrell; Vice-moderator, Jack P. Morgan; Secretary, Mrs. Olivia H. Holloman; Chorister, Joseph 
S. Polinski; Pianist, Mrs. E. Bruce Lassiter, and these were unanimously accepted by the Union.

The Resolutions Committee gave the following report; "Be it resolved that the Bertie Union 
re-affirm our commitment to the Church Covenant, and that we oppose any liberalization of 
the alcoholic beverage laws in N orth Carolina, and that a copy of this be sent to our two State 
Senators." This was unanimously and enthusiastically adopted by the Union. The committee 
also thanked the churches for their hospitality; those on the program for their part, and to all 
who had a part in planning and carrying on the work of the Union. Wint Hale, pastor of the 
Lawrence and Merry Hill Churches then pronounced the benediction. 

The next Bertie Union Meeting will be on Friday, April 26th at the Lawrence Church, with 
the Merry Hill Church assisting. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Olivia H. Holloman, Secretary 



HISTORY OF ASHLEY'S GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH 

— Adapted from "A Half-Century of Ashley's 
Grove Baptist Church," "Ashley's Grove 
Baptist Church History, 1959-1969," and 
historical supplement of 1973. 

Ashley's Grove Baptist Church was constituted in the autumn of 1909 with eighty-eight 
charter members, many of whom had been participants in a Sunday School which had been 
organized in the "Holly Grove" community, Northampton County, as early as 1892. The 
church was named in honor of Ashley Liverman, a man of religious zeal and untiring service, 
who had been a prime mover in the organization of the earlier Sunday School and in the con- 
ducting of prayer meetings in the neighborhood. 

A meeting house was under construction by late 1910 — the building consisting of a sanctu- 
ary and two classrooms for the purposes of the children's division of the Sunday School. This 
house of worship was completed after April 1911, at which time a committee was appointed 
and authorized to borrow the money needed to complete the building. One month later each 
member of the church was asked to double his apportionment on the building fund, with 
"collectors" appointed to receive the apportionments from both the male and female mem- 
bers. 

The church grew in membership from 109 in late 1909 to 241 by 1918, with most of these 
additions coming by transfer of letter from sister churches in the area. A Woman's Missionary 
Union was organized in 1910; a Baptist Young Peoples' Union, in 1919. The growth and "grad- 
ing" of the Sunday School and other youth organizations soon necessitated the addition of 
classroom space. Accordingly, a building committee consisting of J. K. Vann, J. R. Revelle, 
C. R. Revelle, T. L. Liverman, and G. N. Martin superintended the construction of the same in 
1923. 

Church services were conducted once each month during the first eleven years of the life of 
Ashley's Grove. Thereafter, services were held twice monthly until 1957, when the church re- 
ported having services on three Sundays in each month. Other churches which operated in a 
pastoral "field" with Ashley's Grove during these years included Potecasi, Robert's Chapel, 
Menola, Galatia, and Creeksville. The congregation voted to support a pastor and services on 
a "full-time" basis in 1968. That pattern has maintained to the present. 

Other additions were made to the meeting house in 1937 (vestibule); 1947 (brick underpin- 
ning); 1951 (classrooms, columned porch, steeple); and in 1967 baptistry, remodeled educa- 
tional units). A parsonage had been built adjacent to the church lot in 1953-54. But the 
remodeled building had been in use less than two months before the entire physical plant 
was destroyed by fire on January 11, 1968. Sorely disappointed but undaunted, the church 
began immediate preparations for the construction of a new and more commodious house of 
worship. 

Dedication services for the present building were conducted on Sunday, August 10, 1969. It 
is estimated that the current physical plant could not be replaced for less than $150,000, 
although the actual cost of its construction was considerably less than this amount due to 
donations of labor and materials on the part of the membership and other friends of Ashley's 
Grove. 

The pastoral leadership of the Ashley's Grove congregation has been in the hands, hearts.

and minds of the following ministers throughout the years: 

Dancy Cale, 1909-1920 Jarvis U. league, 1946-1950 

J. P. Bennett, 1921 Frank Robinson, 1950-1952 

H. G. Bryant, 1921-1925 Robert Johns, 1953-1958 

N. H. Shepherd, 1926-1928 Jack Painter, 1958-1961

Lonnie Sasser, 1934-1935 Joseph L. Lassiter, 1964-1966 

C. M. Pegram, 1936-1938 Homer T. Baumgarner, 1967-1969 

Lonnie Sasser, 1939-1946 Tim Sellers, 1970- 

By October 1970 the church had liquidated all indebtedness on her new building. Total 
receipts in 1971-72 reached almost $30,000. Church membership was reported as 341, with 66 
persons listed as non-resident members. A radio ministry was initiated in January 1973, with 
the taping for transmission of a portion of the regular Sunday morning worship services. 
As the author of the historical supplement (1969-1973) expressed the matter; 

Time does indeed march on. It always brings change — sometimes good changes, 
sometimes change for the worse. The course of Ashley's Grove Church has not 
always run smooth. It would be easy to say otherwise, but there have been times 
of trouble, conflict of interest, and out-right argument in our church. Something 
must be said about these not-so-Christian-like attitudes in a factual history; but 
it must also be said that these times have not been long-lived. Fundamental 
belief in our Lord and fundamental desire to "do the right thing" plus prayerful 
consideration have always brought thechurch as a whole to peaceful settlement 
of its internal problems. As time goes on so, too, goes the primary work of our 
church — winning souls for Christ. 
May it always continue to be so.

(February 3, 188^March 27, 1974) 



The oldest of eight children born to Ransom Right and Henrietta (Sullivan) Creech, Oscar 
Creech was reared on a farm in Johnston County. He graduated from Clayton (North 
Carolina) High School in 1905, and entered Wake Forest College in the autumn of that same 
year. He was awarded the B. A., cum laude, from Wake Forest in 1908, beginning his profes- 
sional career as a principal-teacher in a boarding school at Castalia (Nash County), where he 
remained until 1912. 

In the latter year Creech moved to Nashville, North Carolina, where he served as principal 
of the Nashville Graded School (1912-1914) and, subsequently, as Superintendent of Nash 
County Schools (1914-1919). Observing both his deep faith and his leadership ability, the con- 
gregation of the Nashville Baptist Church called Mr. Creech to service as their pastor (1915). 
He consented to ordination at the hands of the Nashville Church, and served Nashville 
(1915-1919), Crocker's Chapel (1915-1919), Castalia (1915-1919), and Oak Level (1915-1918) 
churches prior to his removal to Louisville, Kentucky, for a year of theological studies at the 
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (1919-1920). 

Returning to Nash County in the late spring of 1920, Creech was called to the pastorate of 
the Red Oak Baptist Church and to service as principal of the Red Oak Farm Life School — a 
boarding school of some 125 pupils. He continued these dual services in the Red Oak com- 
munity until called to the pastoral charge of First Baptist Church, Ahoskie, on January 1, 
1925 — a pastorate which he would hold until his first "retirement" in 1951 . In that year, Presi- 
dent F. O. Mixon persuaded Mr. Creech to accept the position of Vice-President for Develop- 
ment at Chowan. His subsequent service as a member of the college's administrative 
staff — including an eight-month period as Acting-President following the death of President 
Mixon — continued until his second retirement in February 1961. 

Oscar Creech's leadership among Baptists was recognized through his selection to serve the 
denomination in a variety of capacities beyond the local church ministry. Such service mclud- 
ed: member. Board of Trustees, Chowan College, 1929-1930; 1961; 1963-1967; member. Board 
of Trustees, Meredith College, 1932-1943; member. General Board of the Baptist State Conven- 
tion of North Carolina, 1931-1937; 3rd Vice-President Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina, 1940-41; president. North Carolina Baptist Pastors' Conference, 1940-41; member. 
Board of Directors, BIBLICAL RECORDER, 1944-1947; and member. Board of Trustees, North 
Carolina Baptist Hospital, 1948-1951. Locally, he served as clerk of the West Chowan Baptist 
Association, 1934-1944, and as moderator of the Association, 1946-1953. He was selected to 
preach the Annual Sermon before the North Carolina Baptist State Convention in 1943. He 
was named Honorary Life Trustee of Chowan in 1967. 

in Ahoskie, Creech served for a number of years as a scoutmaster for a troop of Boy Scouts. 
He was instrumental in securing support for the construction of the Roanoke-Chowan Hospi- 
tal, on whose Board of Directors he served for a number of years. He authored a HISTORY OF 
THE AHOSKIE, NORTH CAROLINA, BAPTIST CHURCH, orgmally written for inclusion in a 
special issue of the "Hertford County Herald," saluting the Town of Ahoskie on her Golden 
Anniversary (1939). The history was published as a separate booklet in 1940. He was also co- 
author, with Edgar V. McKnight, of A HISTORY OF CHOWAN COLLEGE, published by the 
college's Department of Graphic Arts in 1964. 

Oscar Creech was united in marriage with Martha Louise Gulley on August 6, 1907. To their 
union were born five children: Orville Ransom, Leah Jessica (Mrs. Gil Frommelt), Oscar, Jr., 
Judson Yates, and Elva Louise (Mrs. Edward Bond). Mrs. Creech and three of their children 
survive him to this day. This annual is dedicated to him in grateful appreciation for his life and 
ministry.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL BOARD 



The General Board of the West Chowan Baptist Association met on four occasions, once in 
each quarter during the associational year. 

In the first meeting the following officers were elected; 
Robert B. Spivey — Chairman 
Rev. Harold Rumfelt — Vice-Chairman 
Rev. Henry Stough — Secretary 

Three members from the General Board were elected to serve on the Executive Committee. 
They were Rev. Walter jones of Northampton County, Rev. Bob Traywick of Bertie County 
and Ray Lassiter of Hertford County, 

After lengthy discussions concerning the Ridgecrest property which had been offered to the 
Association by Dr. and Mrs. Kelly White, it was unanimously voted by the Board to return the 
property to Dr. and Mrs. White with our sincere expression of gratitude for their generosity. 

The Board was advised that after February 1 when Mr. Stough would leave office that the 
Executive Committee had made arrangements to store all associational equipment and sup- 
plies in the Aulander Church building, and that a part time secretary had been employed to 
carry on normal correspondence and bulletin work. 

The Board was also advised that in keeping with the director of the Association that a com- 
mittee had been appointed, composed of Rev. Vincent Young, Chairman, Rev. Walter )ones, 
Rev. Bob Traywick and Ray Lassiter, to find a person to be recommended to the Association as 
its new Director of Associational Work. 

It was voted by the Board that the committee working for an appreciation service for the 
Stoughs be authorized to use an amount equal to the monthly base salary from the General 
Fund to pay the expenses for this service. 

The Christian Life and Public Affairs Committee recommended that emphasis for the com- 
ing year be on "Christian Homes," and that Dr. Charles Petty be invited to speak in the Associ- 
ation. This recommendation was passed unanimously. 

The Survey and Study Committee reported that they were going to continue the study 
started last year on the associations in eastern North Carolina. 

The Missions Committee reported that work was moving forward on the Missions Project in 
Rich Square, and that approximately $5,000 would be needed to purchase the mobile chapel 
for this project. 

In the second meeting, committee reports were heard from all the standing committees, 
which indicated that each committee was progressing very well on their programs for involv- 
ing as many people as possible in meetings to be held within the Association. 

Rev. Vincent Young, Chairman of the committee for a new Associational Director, pre- 
sented a new job description for this position, which was adopted by the General Board. 

A motion was also passed that the General Board commit to rent 400 sq. ft. of office space 
in the New Market Shopping Center in Ahoskie, which will become the Associational office 
when a new director is secured. 

Commendation was extended to Rev. Billy Mobley for being elected President of the 
General Board of North Carolina, and a motion was passed that this become a permanent part 
of the General Board minutes. 

In the third meeting a motion carried unanimously to give the Missions Committee authori- 
ty to place an order for the mobile chapel for the Rich Square Project, and if enough money 
was not in hand at time of delivery that the balance would be financed. 

The Board was advised that Chowan College would be working with our Association pro- 
moling the Cooperative Program, and that an appreciation dinner would be held on Septem- 
ber 7 with the college providing speakers to any churches making requests for Sunday, Sep- 
tember 8. 

The moderator asked in behalf of the Executive Committee that a motion be submitted for 
approval by the Association that the Director of Woman's Missionary Union be made an offi- 
cial member of the Executive Committee. The motion was made and unanimously approved. 

A motion was introduced and unanimously approved to dedicate the 1974 Annual Report 
as a memorial to Dr. Oscar Creech. 

In the fourth meeting the Finance Committee Chairman, Cecil Mizelle, presented the 
1974-75 Proposed Budget. The General Board voted unanimously to recommend to the Asso- 
ciation that this budget be approved. 

Rev. Vincent Young, Chairman of the committee on finding a new Director of Associational 
Work, presented Rev. Henry Powell to the General Board as their recommendation to fill this 



14 



position. The General Board voted unanimously to call Rev. Henry Powell to the Association 
to be our new Director of Association Work, 

The General Board had excellent attendance at all of its meetings and a true spirit of 
cooperation and desire to work for the glory of God was constantly demonstrated. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert B. Spivey, Chairman 

15. The Chairman of the Evangelism Committee, Walter )ones submitted the report on 
Evangelism. He also announced the Lay School of Evangelism beginning Sunday evening, Oc- 
tober 27th, 7:15-9:15 at the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie. It was reported that more WIN 
material was still available. The following report was adopted: 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON EVANGELISM 

The Committee on Evangelism met at the first General Board Meeting and decided to focus 
on a Lay School of Evangelism for the 1973-74 church calendar year. In January, contact was 
made with Bill Lamb ar d he came March 4 to speak to the pastors at their monthly Pastor's 
Conference. All agreed ihat a school in 1974 would be most helpful. Mr. Lamb checked his 
calendar and found that he could possibly be with us to lead in this school on October 28-31 . 

We accepted this date and he has visited us twice since then to give further instructions on 
how to properly respond to the needs of our community in preparation for the school. Due to 
Halloween falling on October 31 the school was moved up to begin on October 27-30. This 
school is to be held at the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie. 

We are looking for a good response to the Lay School of Evangelism since approximately 20 
churches were represented in our planning meetings. All together we are expecting over 150 
people to be involved in this school. Our Committee feels we are extremely fortunate in hav- 
ing Rev. Bill Lamb the Director of Evangelism for North Carolina Baptists to lead us in this 
school. 

February 3-5, the State-wide Evangelism Conference will be held in Greensboro, N. C. Our 
Laymen and women are urged to attend this meeting. 

On August 16 at the Greensboro Coliseum, a large group of young people from across 
North Carolina gathered for the Youth Evangelism Conference. Many young people made 
commitments to Christ when the invitation was extended at the close of the meeting. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter S. lones. 
Chairman of Evangelism 

16. William Downs gave the following report on the Committee on Survey and Study. The 
report was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE "SURVEY AND STUDY COMMITTEE" 

At the conclusion of the associational year 1972-73, the "Survey and Study Committee" had 
begun plans for an "intense study of our Associational Program and our budgetary needs," as 
recommended to the General Board by the Association in the 1972 session at Aulander. With 
the resignation of Rev. Henry Stough, our Director of Associational Work, it was felt that it 
would be impractical to make such a study until a new director was called. 

Plans were made to study the financial structure of other associations, and specifically, the 
personal benefits which they provided their associational directors. These plans were aban- 
doned when it was learned that this was a parallel study to the committee responsible for the 
nomination of a new Director of Associational Work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William L. Downs, Chairman 



15 



17. A. Ray Lassiter, Chairman of Committee on Education and Promotion made a motion 
that the following report be adopted from the Book of Reports. It was adopted. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION 
AND PROMOTION 

The Committee on Education and Promotion met with the General Board at the regularly 
scheduled meetings during the past year. The Committee discussed all of the ideas suggested 
for the Education and Promotion of our Christian work within the Association. 

At our )une meeting, it was decided that the Committee would provide each church in the 
Association with the necessary material and information needed for a better understanding of 
Associational work. Included in this material was a complete job description of the Associ- 
ation worker, and other material related to Associational work. Also included was a list of 
speakers available to any church for the purpose of promoting a better understanding and 
need of cooperation of all churches within the Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. Ray Lassiter, Chairman 

18. lack Byrd, pastor of Cashie and Chairman of the Christian Life and Public affairs Com- 
mittee presented the following report from the Book of Reports and it was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE 
AND PUBLIC AFFAIRS COMMITTEE 

The members of the Committee on Christian Life and Public Affairs express to our churches 
in the West Chowan Association our heartfelt appreciation for the strong support you gave 
the committee and the C. A. L. in the fight against liquor by the drink. God richly rewarded our 
efforts in a resounding defeat of the referendum on November 6, 1973. Mr. Marse Grant, edi- 
tor of the Biblical Recorder, stated it wisely and well in a feature in the Raleigh News and Ob- 
server on November 27 entitled "Drink Defeat a Boost to Church's Influence." Said he in that 
writing and 1 quote: "Not in modern history has such a controversial issue been settled by a 
margin of 70 to 30 per cent, with 97 of 100 counties turning in resounding majorities to defeat 
liquor by the drink." We can be justly proud of the fact that our tri-county area of Bertie, 
Hertford, and Northhampton, comprising the West Chowan Association, were leaders in the 
state as each turned in overwhelming votes in defeat of the referendum. 

The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 7:21 ". . . . when I would do good, evil is present with 
me." Even as our state soundly defeated liquor by the drink, there was a decided rise in the 
use of drugs, particularly among our young people. A quick consultation with the Bertie 
County Sheriff's Department indicated that the growth, possession and use of marijuana is 
definitely on the increase. The increased use of this drug is indeed alarming since so many 
believe that its use may lead to addiction to harder drugs. We should be acutely concerned 
about the drug problem because their use not only adversely affects the user physically and 
mentally but morally as well. There is immorality among our young people where narcotics 
flow freely and promiscuity increases and delinauency is rampant. Let us do all that we can to 
educate our people about the drug traffic. Let us open our eyes and see this menacing evil that 
threatens to destroy the very moral fiber of our nation in its deadly assault upon our youth. Let 
the church stand up and stand out as God's greatest force for righteousness in our fight 
against the false. Let us in our churches show by precept and example to our young people, 
the better way, God's way. 

Your Committee on Christian Life and Public Affairs felt that it should make a strong 
emphasis during the year as the strengthening of the Christian home in today's world. As the 
home goes so goes the community, the nation and the world. There is no greater deterrent to 
sin in our society and remedy for our social ills than that of the strong influence of the Chris- 
tian home. Your committee, with the approval of the General Board of the association, invited 
Dr. Charles V. Petty to speak twice in our association during the month of last May. Dr. Petty is 
director of Christian Life and Public Affairs of the N. C. Baptist State Convention. On the eve- 
ning of May 16, he spoke in the Murfreesboro Baptist Church and on the evening of May 17 he 
spoke in the Cashie Baptist Church at Windsor. He spoke relative to strengthening family life 



1^ 



in the Christian home. All who heard Dr. Petty were richly blessed by his presentation as well 
as challenged to work harder in developing strong Christian homes for herein lies our only 
hope for a better world. Long before there was the institutional church there was the church 
in the home. Paul in Romans and again in Philemon refers "to the church in thy house." The 
church in your house may be equally as important as the church on the street. Let us give our- 
selves to God faithfully in our homes as well as in our churches. Let us adhere to as well as 
practice the Biblical code of ethics and standard of morality. Then we will be practicing and 
professing Christians. 

May God help us to continue to exert our Christian influence in politics, in business, and in 
all segments of society to the end that God's Kingdom will come on earth as it is in heaven. 

Respectfully submitted, 
jack W. Byrd, Chairman 
Christian Life and Public 
Affairs Committee 

19. Bob Traywick, Chairman of the Missions Committee asked Ronald Richardson to come 
and help present the report on the Mobile Unit. Mr. Traywick said the deeds to the Mobile 
Chapel were ready to be turned over to the Trustees. Labor for hook-ups for the Mobile 
Chapel was donated by the Migrant Center. The Association still owes about $700 to pay for 
materials used in hooking up the water, lights, etc. The Chapel will be able to begin full time 
on November 24, 1974, and that afternoon at 3:30 there will be a Dedication Service for the 
Chapel. It was noted that Mr. Traywick's brother donated 500 Bibles for use with the Mobile 
Chapel. Mr. Traywick made a motion that the report in the Book of Reports be accepted. The 
following report was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE 
MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

The Missions Committee has had a busy year. Many things which needed to be done were 
discussed including a Motel Ministry, Resort Ministry, Hospital, Rest Homes, etc.: but the pri- 
mary concern was the establishment of a Mobile Chapel at the Migrant Training Center at 
Rich Square. The mobile unit has been purchased and is now on the lot. Preparations are 
being made now to ready the unit for Sunday School and Worship. Churches in the Associ- 
ation have been more than gracious in their response to the needs at the Training Center. 

No doubt we have left some things undone in order to get this one project completed, but 
we felt it necessary to complete this work. The State Convention helped us financially in 
purchasing the mobile unit. Many ministers and lay people have been involved. A committee, 
of both blacks and whites, meets once a month at the Training Center to discuss the work of 
the project. Our major concern is to try to reach the two hundred people housed there. Since 
the last Missions Report was given over 200 people have come and gone and we were not 
able to present the Gospel to them. Bibles were distributed, literature bought but no place 
was available for worship services. We thank God that problem has been solved. 

We hope that all of you will take the time to go to Rich Square and visit the Training Center 
and see the Mobile Unit. Talk to some of the people — some are white, some 
Spanish Speaking, some blacks — they all want to hear the Gospel. We hope that in the near 
future a Dedication Service can be arranged and the Association will be invited. 

Respectfully submitted, 
B. ). Traywick, Chairman 
Missions Committee

22. It was announced that there were 2 Reach Out Posters for each Church and they were 
available at the meeting. 

23. Thanks was given to Vincent Young, pastor of Aulander and Chairman of the Commit- 
tee of Five in securing a new Director of Associational Work. 

24. Vincent Young, Sunday School Director announced that November 17, 1974 will be 
designated as High Attendance Sunday in our Association, State and the Southern Baptist 
Convention, CBS, NBC and ABC Networks will be cooperating with the SBC and put spot an- 
nouncements on T.V. on the night of the 17th reporting our attendance. The following Sunday 
School Report was adopted. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

The available statistics relating to the Sunday Schools within the West Chowan Baptist As- 
sociation indicate a loss of Sunday School enrollment, and average attendance. In 1969, the 
total enrollment of the Sunday Schools in our Association was 11,011. In 1970 it dropped to 
10,568. In 1971 the total was 9,808. In 1972 the total was down again. By 1973 the loss was 
down to 9,595. The available statistics for the 1973-74 Sunday School year shows an enroll- 
ment of 9,426 with an average attendance of 5,108. The average attendance the year before 
was 5,389, a drop of 281. There were 28 Sunday School's showing a loss of enrollment and 30 
churches showing a loss in attendance. While 30 churches showed a loss in enrollment, 20 
Sunday Schools showed an increase in attendance. 

In the past year the Associational Sunday School Department provided the following helps 
for our churches: 

TEACHER IMPROVEMENT CLINICS. There were three clinics held for the purpose of teach- 
ing the Guiding series of books to the leadership of our Sunday Schools. The clinics began at 
5:30 continuing until 9:00 each night. This was the first attempt to have such a meeting with 
supper provided. We met at the Cashie Church March 20th and at Conway March 27th and 
concluded March 28th at the Ahoskie Church. We had 160 to participate in these clinics. 

ONE NIGHT REVIVALS. A boost for our Sunday School work came from our one night Sun- 



20 



day School Revivals. Ralph Knight as our speaker and choirs made up of churches in each 
county where the meetings were held inspired each person who attended. On January 28th 
we met with the Conway Church, at Askewville January 27th and concluded with the Ahoskie 
Church January 30th. There were over 200 to participate. 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL CLINICS. On January 7-9 a team from our association attended 
the State Vacation Bible School Clinic at Wingate College to learn of the materials for the 1974 
Bible Schools. 

This team then came back to our association to conduct two clinics for our churches. The 
first clinic was held at the Colerain Baptist Church beginning at 9:00 on April 2 and concluding 
at 2:00. A hot lunch was provided by the church. April 9 at Murfreesboro Baptist Church we 
met at 5:00 for the first night VBS Clinic in our association. Supper was also provided for those 
attending. There were 150 people representing 34 churches of the 60 in our association to at- 
tend. 

RIDGECREST. Your Associational Sunday School Director attended the Ridgecrest Con- 
ference July 29 — August 2, 1974. This conference gave him an opportunity to learn more 
about Sunday School work and by conferring with other directors, learned what other associ- 
ations were doing in Sunday School work. This week helped me to know how to best plan for 
the 1974-75 year in our association. 

OTHER HAPPENINGS. On November 5, 1973 we held a Sunday School Directors meeting 
to introduce the plans for the 1973-74 associational Sunday School year. 

A team from our association attended the Regional Workshop in Wilmington for the pur- 
pose of learning how to lead the "Guiding" clinics in our association. 

The pastors had an overnight retreat at White's Beach and had as their guest Burral Lucas, 
State Sunday School Director. He discussed the Sunday School work of our Southern Baptist 
Convention, and our State and how we could apply it to our churches in our association. 

The new emphasis for 74-75 will include special attention given to adults. In preparation for 
this a team went to Williamston October 8, 1974 to learn of the work of adults. We then will 
be conducting three clinics in our association for Key Adult leaders from our churches. 

Our association will also be involved in reaching goals within our churches for High Atten- 
dance Sunday this year November 17th and in 1975, November 2nd. This is'a convention 
effort to get churches to discover absentees and prospects with the hopes these will be 
brought into the church that greater attendance may be reached in our Sunday Schools. 

For the first time there will be an Associational Pastor-Sunday School Director Workshops. 
This will be an attempt to get each pastor with his Sunday School Director to sit down 
together in a clinic to make plans, set goals and discuss his Sunday School work in his own 
church. 

This has been a busy year for the Sunday School workers in our association and the coming 
year also looks to be busy. We who seek to do the Lord's work know how busy we can 
become but if we are doing His work it becomes worthwhile. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Vincent Young, S. S. Director 

25. Walter Hill, Church Training Director made a motion that we accept the report in the 
printed Book of Reports. This was adopted. Report follows: 

CHURCH TRAINING DEPARTMENT REPORT 

This has been a good year for Church Training in our Association. More churches are plan- 
ning on some types of a training program during the coming year. This year we have helped in 
the organization of some new departments. There are 17 Training Unions reported last year. 
This is not a true picture of the Church Training Program that is going on in our churches. We 
hope that this coming year the message can be carried across to our churches that a Church 
Training Program consists of those training periods, which the churches are doing on other 
times than on Sunday night. We believe that most of our churches are doing some special 
types of training, but are failing to report it in the letter to the Association. We urge you to re- 
think your Church Training Program. Let us help you! 

We are looking forward to an exciting year with training classes for each local church if we 
are invited to come. A Church Training Workshop and a Church Administration Workshop 



21 



are being planned. Yes, it is exciting to think how we shall advance together in a more effec- 
tive Christian Witness in our Churches and Community. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter F. Hill, Director 



26. Harold Rumfelt made a motion that we accept the Music Report as printed in the Book 
of Reports. This was done in the absence of the Music Director, Bob Dills. The report was 
adopted. 

REPORT OF THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT 

This past year our State Baptist Convention sponsored, on a regional level, an Adult Choir 
Festival. The Festival for our area was held in the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie on February 
25. Of the four choirs participating, two from our Association were involved: the Jackson Bap- 
tist Church and the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie. It was a good experience for all. 

We're sorry to report that the Associational School of Music, scheduled early last February, 
had to be cancelled due to the gasoline crisis. 

As an officer of the Association, it has been my pleasure during the year to assist several of 
Dur churches by providing information, music and suggestions. This is the Ministry we wish to 
encourage. The Music Department express their gratitude for your support and cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert T. Dills 
Director 

27. It was stated that the Kelly White property report was adopted in the Report of the

Green's Cross Baptist Church 
(No Pastor)

HISTORY OF GREEN'S CROSS BAPTIST CHURCH 



On January 17, 1874, in the community then known as Oakie Woods, Green's Cross Road 
Church was organized near the spot where the present building now stands. The name 
Green's Cross was taken from the late Billie Green who had owned most of the surrounding 
land at that time. 

The 25 charter members set out to establish this church that is worshipped in today, 100 
years later. 

The first pastor to serve was Brother joseph W. White who was ordained to the ministry, 
January 18, 1874, the day after plans were made to organize the church. 

During the first 50 years, 14 pastors served in this order: Joseph W. White, J. R. Matthews, 
Bytha Leggett, S. F. Bristo, G. W. White, S. R. Barnes, E. S. Pierce, W. P. Jordan, L. E. Edwards, 
R. D. Stevenson, M. A. Adams, T. T. Speight, N. J. Todd and J. H. Barnes with salaries ranging 
from $40.00 per year for the first one to $150.00 by 1914. Three ministers were ordained during 
the first 50 years — Joseph W. White, G. W. White, and Dancy Dempsey. 

As the church grew in membership, the need for more space grew. Three church houses 
were built in the early years. The third building, a part of the present one, was dedicated on 
Thanksgiving Day, November 29, 1923. 

In 1918 Green's Cross Roads, Bethany, Riverside and Ross churches entered into a field 
together. After one year Bethany withdrew and Capeharts came into the field. The Rev. J. H. 
Barnes was called as first pastor of this field. 

The first Woman's Missionary Society was organized in 1896 with men, women and 
children joining, but it became inactive after several years. 

After Rev. J. H. Barnes and his wife came as pastor, the Missionary Society was reorganized 
and Mrs. Barnes organized the first Sunbeam Band. 

Around 1924 Riverside withdrew from the field. On Thanksgiving night, 1931 Mrs. D. L. 
Cobb, one of our most loved and dedicated Christians, donated a parcel of land on which a 
parsonage was to be built. 

The community people came together and donated building materials, time and labor to 
build the parsonage. Only 700 dollars in cash money was used to erect the 8-room structure, 
which was dedicated on December 8, 1936. Rev. G. W. Burch who came to the field in 1930 
was the first occupant of the new parsonage. 

During his pastorate. Elm Grove was organized and became a part of the field. 

In 1939, the Green's Cross community suffered a disaster when a tornado struck. Three peo- 
ple were killed and many homes and property were destroyed. God, in His infinite power saw 
fit to spare the church and parsonage with only slight damage. 

During the years from 1930 through 1953, the church grew spiritually and materially. Many 
additions and renovations were made in the church under the leadership of noble pastors. In 
1947, the field divided with two churches. Green's Cross and Capeharts making the field with 
H. B. Muggins as pastor. 

Pastors who served during this period, 1930-1953, were: G. W. Burch, J. O. Walton, W. O. 
Andrews, Millard Brown (supply), E. R. Stewart, H. B. Muggins and J. O. Walton (second time). 

In August, 1953, a motion was made and approved by the church to go full time. On the 
first Sunday in January, 1954, Rev. Marvey Coppedge became the first full time pastor. 

During his pastorate and under his dynamic leadership, the church went forward spiritually 
and physically. 

The unified budget plan was adopted, new additions were added to the church; rest rooms, 
folding doors for classrooms adjoining the auditorium, new pews and a baptistry installed. 
The first electric organ was bought and many more improvements made. Probably the high- 
light of Rev. Coppedge's Christian influence in the church was the ordination of Brother 
Raleigh Castellow, Jr. into the work of the ministry on January 2, 1962. In 1963, Brother C. E. 
Thomas was ordained. 

After the resignation of Rev. Coppedge in April, 1962, pastors who served through 1966 
were: K. E. Bryant (supply), Joseph Lang, Paul Hollowell, and Carl Chandler. During 1968 
Graham Elmore came as pastor and served two years. In 1970 a recommendation was made to 
sell the old parsonage and purchase the more modern house and property owned by the Fred 
T. Spring family. This transaction was made and all debts incurred have since been paid. 

In February, 1970, another one of our sons Brother Mubert Mizelle was ordained to the 
work of the ministry. 

Other pastors serving since 1970 were: W. H. Gardner (supply), J. K. Johnson and Maurice 
McLain. 



23 



Since January of 1973 central heat and air-conditioning has been installed, and a choir loft 
has been added. 

One of the highlights of our 100th anniversary was to have Rev. Hubert Mizelle, who is now 
pastor of Elm Grove Baptist Church, come back to conduct our fall revival. 

At the present time the church is without a pastrjr, but we are being served by one of God's 
servants. Rev. Billy Martin of Camden County. 

Green's Cross can proudly enter the second century of her service to God with a determina- 
tion to continue to carry out the Great Commission she has from the Lord Jesus. She can also 
boast of the opportunity she had of being host for the annual West Chowan Baptist Associ- 
ation during her 100th anniversary. 

32. The congregation stood and sang "All the Way My Saviour Leads Me." 

33. James Chamblee, of Chowan College brought a group of eight young people that sang a 
medley of songs. This group of young people offering Iheir voices unto God in song was en- 
joyed by all. 

34. William T. Charles, Chairman of the Committee on the Constitution read some changes 
in the constitution. This was the first reading of the first day. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE CONSTITUTION 

After prayerful and careful consideration, and upon recommendation of the General Board 
of the West Chowan Baptist Association, the Committee on the Constitution recommends for 
your consideration the following changes in the constitution: 

ARTICLE 19 — The Director of Woman's Missionary Union shall direct and supervise the pro- 
gram for the women and girls in cooperation with the General Board. 

ARTICLE 20 — This will be the same as Article 19 in the present constitution and each succeed- 
ing Article number will increase by 1, namely: Article 20 becomes Article 21, 21 
becomes 22, etc. 

If the above is adopted, then certain insertions need to be made in other articles and certain 
wording changed to update the constitution. 

ARTICLE 10 — Change a Superintendent of Sunday School to a Director of Sunday School. 

After Director of Brotherhood insert Director of Woman's Missionary Union; 

ARTICLE 16 — Change the Superintendent of Sunday School to Director of Sunday School. 

ARTICLE 20 — (New Article 21) Change Superintendent of Sunday School to Director of Sun- 
day School. 

It is the desire of the Committee on the Constitution to provide for this association the very 
best constitution possible. If you or your church have any suggestions please pass them along 
to this committee for consideration and possible presentation to the next Associational Meet- 
ing. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William T. Charles, Chairman 

35. Dr. W. D. Morris gave a report of the Nominating Committee. The slate of officers were

36. Walter Jones, Chairman of Committee on Committees read its report and these were 
duly elected. 

37. Mrs. Walter Jones, Clerk presented the Calendar of Activities as printed in the Book of

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF CAPEHARTS BAPTIST CHURCH 



On December 10, 1824, seventy-four men and women — gathered at Capeharts Meeting 
House — covenanted together to form Capeharts Baptist Church. These charter members of 
the new church had formerly been members of the Cashie and Wiccacon (Colerain) Baptist 
Churches. One of their number, Reuben Lawrence, was called to serve as the first pastor; 
Charles Cobb, to serve as first clerk. 

The roster of pastors who have served the congregation over the past 150 years includes 
many of the "stalwarts" among ministers within the Chowan and West Chowan Baptist asso- 
ciations: Reuben Lawrence, 1824-1843; Henry White, 1843-1855; John N. Hoggard, 1855-1861; 
Edward S, Pierce, 1861-1862; Thomas Hoggard, 1862-1876; Thomas G. Wood, 1876-1878; 
Jeremiah Bunch 1878-1884; William P. Jordan, 1884-1896; Thomas T. Speight, 1896-1897; James 
A. Speight, 1897-1898; Edward S. Pierce, 1898-1901; J. O. Anderson, 1901-1902; J. R. Matthews, 
1902-1903; Thomas T. Speight, 1903-1914; D. P. Dailey, 1914-1915; H. H. Honeycutt, 1915-1918; 
W. R. Haight, 1918-1919; J. H. Barnes, 1919-1923; Alonzo Finch, 1923-1929; H. C. Bryant, 
1929-1930; George W. Burch, 1930-1934; J. O. Walton, 1934-1938; W. O. Andrews, 1938-1942; 
E. R. Stewart, 1942-1946; Henry B. Huggins, 1946-1952; J. O. Walton, 1952-1953; Paul F. Burke, 
1953-1959; Garth E. Long, 1959-1963; George W. H. White, 1964-1967; William E. Carter 
1967-1969; R. D. Byrd, 1969-1972; and Bervin Ferguson, 1972 to the present. 

Outstanding events in the life of the church have been noted as follows: 

1825 — Union with Chowan Association and Bertie Union; licensing of William W. Pierce to 
"preach in the bounds of this church and the neighboring churches if he thinks 
proper." 

1847 — First Missionary society formed. 
1860 — Vote to build new meeting house. 

1870 — Meeting house completed and first used for conference and worship; "Sabbath 
School" established. 

1910 — Decision to build new house of worship (present building), with building completed 

and dedicated in 1918. 
1928 — Adoption of unified budget system. 
1946 — Enters into "field" of churches with Green's Cross. 

1953 — First parsonage completed; Paul Burke called as first resident, full time pastor. 

1962 — New wing of Sunday School classrooms approved, with work completed in 1964. 

Throughout her years, Capeharts has been a missionary organization, beginning in the local 
community and extending throughout the earth. Among those churches in eastern Bertie 
which can be counted as "daughters' of Capeharts are: Green's Cross, Lawrence's, Merry Hill, 
and Riverside, with charter members having been dismissed at the time of the constitution of 
each of these churches. 

A church historian has noted: "To the people who lived in the Capeharts community, this 
illustrious history and the Capeharts Church stands as a monument to their dedication, devo- 
tion, and faith in God and their fellow man. Though there were bright days of rejoicing and 
dark days of disappointment, their faith never faltered as they looked to God and the future 
since that humble beginning back in 1824 when seventy-four dedicated people affixed their 
names to the covenant of the new church, "Capeharts." 

(Adapted from sketch in 150th anniversary bulletin of the Capeharts Baptist Church) 

62. Billy Mobley, Chairman of the Committee on Ordinations, gave the following report:

on was recommended for ordination. On Sunday afternoon, August 11, 1974, the congrega- 
tions of the Merry Hill Baptist Church and the Bethel Baptist Church of the Chowan Associ- 
ation joined together for this significant service of ordination. 

63. The Committee on Membership had nothing to report. 

64. The Committee on Libraries had no report. 

65. Robert C. White, pastor of Connaritsa-Horton's, gave the following report on the work 
of the Royal Ambassadors. He asked that the printed report in the Book of Reports be adopted 
under the heading of the Brotherhood Department.

REPORT OF ROYAL AMBASSADORS 



The West Chowan Association Boys' Rally was held March 19, at the Creech Memorial Bap- 
tist Church. There were 32 in attendance. It seems that the severe gas shortage hurt our atten- 
dance this year. A program was given by Rev. Robert C. White on Missions in Brazil. 

Officers for the year were elected. Those elected were: Roger Askew of Creech Memorial as 
president, Thomas Williams of Connaritsa as vice-president, and Dail Phelps as secretary. 

The Association Track Meet was held April 27 at Chowan College Campus. There were 
eleven churches represented with 117 boys present. The winners of the meet represented our 
Association at the State Track Meet at Gardner-Webb College. 

On June 15, the Royal Ambassadors enjoyed an outing at Raleigh's Beach. 

We encourage all of our churches to provide for an organization for the boys in your com- 
munity by having a Royal Ambassador program in your church. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert C. White, 
Association R. A. Leader 

66. Report of the Enrollment Committee: 200 registered Messengers, Alternates, Pastors and 
Visitors for today and 57 churches represented. 

67. The congregation sang "O Zion Haste." 

68. Mrs. Walter S. Jones, Woman's Missionary Union Director gave the following report 
which was adopted. 

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The Seaboard Baptist Church was hostess to the Eighty-Fifth Annual Meeting of Woman's 
Missionary Union of the West Chowan Baptist Association. Elam Baptist Church and 
Margarettsville Baptist Church were co-hostesses along with Seaboard. The meeting began at 
4:30 P. M. As far as records can tell it was the largest attendance for such a meeting. Along 
with bad weather and tornado warnings we had an estimated 350 in attendance. 

Mrs. Gilmer Cross, N. C. Woman's Missionary Union President was our guest speaker. Mrs. 
Cross spoke on the subject and the theme of the meeting, "Sharing God's Word." The high- 
light of the evening was a Parade of Flags and Countries in which we have SBC Foreign Mis- 
sionaries. Flags were borrowed from the Foreign Mission Board and individuals from each 
church in the association dressed to represent one of the 77 countries in which we have mis- 
sionaries. This was a colorful and inspiring event. All age levels participated in the program. 
Also visiting and on the program other than WMU related, were the Handbell Choirs and the 
Baptist Men's Choir from the Conway Baptist Church. 

Another event, and a first in our association was a Fellowship Meeting comprising the 
church WMU Directors, their Pastor's and Wives and the Associational WMU Executive 
Council. This meeting was planned to familiarize the Pastors with our Woman's Missionary 
work. The event was a luncheon at the First Baptist Church of Ahoskie in November 1973. Dr. 
Howard Ford, Director of the State Missions was the speaker for the occasion. 

Again our association was recognized at the Annual Session of Woman's Missionary Union 
as being graded "Distinguished." The Annual Session was held in Winston-Salem, March 
1973. A bus load from our association attended this meeting in which Miss Alma Hunt, SBC 
Woman's Missionary Union Executive Secretary was honored because of her retirement this 
year.

69. In the absence of the Historian, Bennie Pledger made a motion that we accept the writ- 
ten report found in the Book of Reports. Another motion was made and adopted that it be 
recorded in the minutes, a public thanks to Dr. Hargus Taylor for his fine work as Chairman of 
the Committee on History. 

70. The Report on Chowan College written by Dr. Hargus Taylor, was also adopted and 
follows the Report on History. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON HISTORY 

The practice of carrying brief historical sketches of the churches of the West Chowan Bap- 
tist Association within the annual MINUTES, year-by-year, serves at least two purposes: (1) It 
keeps our heritage before us, reminding us of those roots from which the several congrega- 
tions have sprung. (2) It provides data for some future effort at preparing a history of the larger 
association and its churches. 

But the preparation of such sketches and — by inference — the preparation of any future 
history of the larger association will be dependent upon the kind of resource materials availa- 
ble to the historian. Thus, this report represents an appeal to the churches with reference to 
the gathering and preservation of those records which can make the writing of a full and ac- 
curate history possible. Here are some of the things churches can do in this regard: 

(1) Collect and preserve ALL records of church conferences which can be found. 

(2) Collect and preserve the records of church organizations and/or auxiliaries — especially 
those of Woman's Missionary Union and the "boards" of deacons. 

(3) Keep a file of weekly bulletins, newsletters, records of special events, etc. 

(4) Record (preferably, tape) occasional interviews with senior members of your congrega- 
tion for purpose of "oral" history materials. 

(5) Have records of church conference microfilmed as a guard against future loss or 
destruction of such records. This can be done through the curator of the Baptist Collec- 
tion at Wake Forest University at no cost to the church. 

If a church needs a "despository" for its official records, the libraries at Chowan College or 
at Wake Forest University will be happy to receive these — on a "permanent loan" basis — with 
the materials remaining the property of the church involved. Churches in our area are invited

REPORT ON CHOWAN COLLEGE 

Chowan College began her 127th academic year as an institution dedicated to Christian 
higher education with an enrolment of 1047, representing 19 states, 16 foreign countries, and 
the Carolina Islands (U. S. Territory) of the South Pacific. Indicative of the manner in which 
the college continues to serve the region which gave it birth and which nurtured it during the 
formative years (the region covered by the Chowan, West Chowan, and Virginia Portsmouth 
Association) is the fact that 27% of the members of the current student body reside within 
this region of northeastern North Carolina and southeastern Virginia. If one adds that territory 
now served by the churches of the North Roanoke and South Roanoke Associations in 
eastern North Carolina, the percentage of students residing in this larger region amounts to 
almost 40% . Thus, Chowan remains a college which serves the youth of its region, while also 
attracting students from a much broader geographical and cultural base. 

The college is especially grateful to the churches of the West Chowan Association for the 
continuing confidence expressed in her and her mission in higher education. It is these 
churches which continue to provide the largest source of "special gifts" towards the college's 
operating budget, beyond the Cooperative Program dollar. It is to these churches that 
Chowan College senses a special mission, in terms of both the educational and spiritual ser- 
vices she can render. 

In this regard, the churches and their individual members are encouraged to become more 
fully acquainted with Chowan College and her educational mission as a Christian college. The 
following suggestions are offered as a means of enhancing such acquaintance: (1) Visit the 
campus, as individuals or in groups. "Tours" of the campus and its facilities can be arranged 
by contacting the Office of College Relations or the Office of the Chaplain. (2) Place admis- 
sions materials and other data related to the programs of Chowan in church libraries or other 
areas, where they will be readily accessible to your youth. If you do not have such materials, 
the various offices will be more than happy to provide them for you on your request. 
(3) Keep abreast of events scheduled for the community-at-large and/or for churches, and 
participate in these. (4) Call upon the college when in need of pulpit supply, teachers for Bi- 
ble Study or other special programs, youth-led revival meetings or other emphases, or ANY 
OTHER SERVICE FOR WHICH YOU THINK THE COLLEGE .MIGHT HAVE RESOURCE PER- 
SONS OR MATERIALS. Again, the office to contact are those of the Chaplain or the Director 
of College Relations. (5) Most of all — continue to pray for the entire college community, and 
then back-up your prayers with supportive words, deeds, and gifts. 

71. Ronald Richardson brought the report of the Resolutions Committee which was 
adopted. 

"WHEREAS, the Ninety-Second Session of the West Chowan Baptist Association has been 
informative and stimulating meeting, both in reporting what has transpired within the Associ- 
ation as well as projecting plans for the future, be it resolved that we express our appreciation 
as follows: 

1. To the Green's Cross, Cashie, Siloam, Capeharts, Center Grove and Early's Churches 
for their hospitality and fellowship; 

2. To the Program Committee for its work in planning a meeting which has exposed us 
to the broad scope of Baptist life and work; 

3. To all participants in the meetings for their time and energy in sharing with us them- 
selves and their work; 

4. To the Moderator, the Officers, Leaders and Committees of the Association for their 
leadership throughout the Associational year and during this session. 

"WHEREAS, the need for more copies of the Word of God relative to the Mobile Chapel 
ministry at the Migrant Training Center in Rich Square was met by the gift of five hundred Bi- 
bles by Mr. Gary Traywick of Greenville, S. C, let it be resolved that the West Chowan Baptist 
Association Meeting in annual session at Capeharts Baptist Church, October 23rd, 1974 ex- 
press our deep gratitude and appreciation for this generous gift and that the Associational 
Clerk be directed to send Mr. Traywick a copy of this resolution." 



34 



The resolutions were adopted. 

72. An offering was taken to help deplete some of the approximate $700 debt for hook-ups 
to the Mobile Chapel in Rich Square. The Offering yielded $227.67. 

73. Jack Byrd, Chairman of the Time, Place and Preacher Committee gave the following re- 
port which was adopted: The Time, Place and Preacher Committee recommends that the 
Spring Association Meeting ("Bertie Union") be held nn Frid;iv, April 25th at the Holly Springs 
Church with the Union Church assisting. And that the Ninety-Third Annual Session of the 
West Chowan Association hold its first day on Tuesday, October 21 st at Colerain Church with 
the Bethany and Riverside Churches assisting. The preacher, Tim Sellers of the Ashley's Grove 
Church; the alternate, Ronnie Eason of the Meherrin Church. The second day is to be held on 
Wednesday, October 22nd at the Harrellsville Church with Bethlehem and Christian Harbor 
Churches assisting. The preacher, Ronald Richardson of the Riverside Church; the alternate 
Daniel Featherstone of the Sandy Run Church. 

74. The Moderator presented the officers for 1974-75. They stood up in front of the sanctu- 
ary while the congregation sang "\ Love to Tell the Story." 

75. The meeting was adjourned and Walter Jones, pastor of the Conway Baptist Church, 
pronounced the Benediction. 

THE SPRING ASSOCIATION MEETING 

"The Bertie Union Meeting" 

The "Bertie Union Meeting" was held at the Lawrence Baptist Church on April 26, 1974, and 
the theme was "Building Christian Family Relationships." The Moderator, William M. Futrell 
called the meeting to order, and the first hymn was led by Joseph S. Polinski of the Edgewood 
Church. The Scripture was read by Wint Hale, Jr. pastor of the church and Henry W. Stough of 
Aulander led in prayer. The Moderator then explained how the Bertie Union first began. Mr. 
Stough then introduced the new pastors of the Association one of whom was Steve Leicester 
from the Lawrence Church, but had not been ordained yet. 

The first message of the day was delivered by Lamar Wheeler, pastor of the Woodland 
Church. He spoke on the topic "The Family Worships," explaining that worship is reaching 
out to God. 

The history of Lawrence Church was given by Steve Leicester. The church was celebrating 
100 years of service to God and community. "Count Your Many Blessings" was sung after 
which the Moderator appointed the following committees. Nominating, Henry Stough, John 
Peele, and B. W. Wheeler. The Resolutions Committee consisted of Clyde Finch, Bennie 
Pledger and Harold Rumfelt. 

Bennie Pledger, pastor of the Colerain Church brought the message, "Our World Missions 
Channel" stating how each church member can have a part in missions to all parts of the 
world to teach adults and little children of God's love for them. Because of conflicting cir- 
cumstances The West Chowan Pastors Chorus could not bring the special music for the day. 
"The Family Communicates" was the topic brought by Joseph Polinski of the Edgewood 
Church. 

The first session closed by singing "My Jesus I Love" followed by benediction and blessing 
for lunch by Jack Mace, pastor of Powellsville and Center Grove churches. 

The afternoon session began by singing "Amazing Grace" after which Oscar Long, pastor of 
Union and Mt. Tabor churches read the Scripture and led in prayer. Frank Stansbury, pastor of 
Bethel and Elam brought a message entitled "The Family Has Problems Too." Rev. Donald 
McManus of the Kelford and Menola churches sang, "Jesus Is All The World To Me." The next 
message was entitled, "The Family Has Personality," also brought by Mr. McManus. 

Reports of Committees as follows: Nominating made the following recommendations: 
Moderator, William M. Futrell; Vice-Moderator, Jack P. Morgan; Secretary, Mrs. Olivia H. 
Holloman; Chorister, Joseph S. Polinski; Pianist, Mrs. Bruce Lassiter. These were unanimously

THAT THE BERTIE UNION: 1. Express with heartfelt gratitude its thankfulness to the Law- 
rence and Merry Hill churches for their kind hospitality, warm Christian friendship and the

sons who brought such challenging and inspiring messages for their fine contribution to the 
wholesome and uplifting program. BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Bertie Union express our gra- 
titude to our Union Officers for their dedicated leadership. Benediction was pronounced by 



35 



Rev. Ron Richardson, pastor of Riverside Church, after singing one verse of "God Be With You 
Til We Meet Again." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Olivia H. Holloman 
Secretary 




Lawrence Baptist Church. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF LAWRENCE BAPTIST CHURCH 

Constituted on October 30, 1874 — with charter members who had received letters of dis- 
mission from Cashie and Capeharts Baptist churches — the Lawrence Cross Roads Baptist 
Church (now, Lawrence's Baptist Church) has just completed 100 years of Christian service to 
the community and surrounding neighborhood. Since the fortunes of the church and con- 
gregation — spiritually — have been closely related to the vision and service of those who have 
served her in the pastoral office, this sketch will highlight some of the attainments related to 
the ministry of the succession of pastors who have served the congregation faithfully and 
well. 

Edward S. Pierce (1875-1878) initiated many of the "programs" and activities which have 
continued to be vital to the church and her life; church grew to its largest membership under 
the leadership and ministry of Pierce. 

B. F. Barber (1879-1884) led the church to begin her first building program; appointed the 
first "standing committees" with responsibility for particular functions and ministries of the 
congregation. Barber relinquished the pastoral office in June 1884, due to ill health, with Ed- 
ward S. Pierce completing his "term" of service. (It should be noted that pastors were called 
"annually" in those days.) 

M. L. Green (1885-1888) led church to complete the building program begun under the 



36 



ministry of his predecessor. 

S. F. Bristow (1889-1897) was instrumental in leading the church to greater support of mis- 
sions and benevolences, especially those of foreign missions and the recently established 
Baptist Children's Home. It was also during Bristow's pastorate that the deacons began to take 
a more vital and active role in the life of the church. 

Edward S. Pierce (1898-1901), returning for his third "term" as pastor of the congregation, 
was instrumental in helping the congregation to remove debts which had accumulated dur- 
ing earlier years, and to operate a "surplus" of revenue for the first time in her history. 

S. B. Barnes (1902-1908) aided the church and congregation in expanding her ministries 
within the community; church building underwent extensive renovation and enlargement, 
due to increased growth in membership and attendance; first organ purchased. 

S. F. Bristow (1920-1924) returned for a second period as pastor, during which time the 
church experienced much spiritual growth and prosperity. 

The Reverend A. Corey (1924-1952) served the church and congregation longer than any 
other pastor during the first one hundred years of her history; church building was removed 
to its present site. 

Since March 1952, Lawrence's Baptist Church and Merry hiill Baptist Church have been 
united in a "field," with the services of the same pastor. Those who have labored with the two 
congregations include Lamar Sentell (1952-1956), Oscar Turner (1956-1963), Francis Cordrey 
(1964-1966), Robert Lambert (1968), Sherwood Allcox (1969-1972), and Wint Hale (1973 to 
present). The church has grown spiritually and in physical facilities during these years in an at- 
tempt to meet the changing and challenging needs of the neighborhood. 

Other ministers who have served the church for brief periods included the Reverend R. L. 
Gay (1909), D. P. Harris (1914-1915), and S. B. Barnes (1916-1919). As the historian for the 
church has noted: "It can truly be seen that the Lord has blessed this church greatly in the past 
one hundred years. And the church has responded to his blessings by giving her service and 
love to the community that has also loved her. May she continue on for another century as 
she has for the past, by being the lighthouse to the community."

Dedication 



Dedication to 

Mr. W. A. "Will" Thomas 
1880-1975 



WILLIAM ABRAHAM ("WILL") THOMAS 
(August 25, 1880-October 18, 1975) 

The West Chowan Baptist Association has lost one of its most faithful and devoted servants 
with the passing of W. A. ("Will") Thomas, October 18, 1975. In partial acknowledgment of his 
service, the messengers to this ninety-third annual session of the Association have elected to 
dedicate this annual to his memory. 

William Abraham Thomas was the oldest of four children born to the late and beloved Dr. 
Roscius Pope Thomas and Mary Green Mitchell Thomas. Nurtured in Bethlehem Baptist 
Church — the church of his father and his grandfather before him — "Mr. Will" professed faith 
in Jesus Christ and presented himself as a candidate for baptism into the membership of 
Bethlehem Baptist Church on August 20, 1892. Thereafter, with the exception of his three 
years as a student at Wake Forest College (1898-1901 ), he was a consistent attendant upon the 
services of his church throughout his life. 

Recognizing his gifts and abilities, Bethlehem Church elected him to various positions of 
leadership and trust. He served as Superintendent of the Sunday School, 1906-1910 and 
1914-1958. He was named "Treasurer for Missions" in 1917 and — later-Treasurer of the 
church, serving in the latter capacity, 1922-1968. Ordained a deacon on July 18, 1915, "Mr. 
Will" was serving his church in this capacity at the time of his death, having just been re- 
elected to a six-year term. During approximately 40 of these years he was named Chairman of 
the board of deacons. 

On the associational level, Mr. Thomas was elected treasurer of the West Chowan Baptist 
Association, annually, 1916-1952. His interest in the work of the Sunday School was evi- 
denced by his affiliation with the old West Chowan Sunday School Convention (later. Associ- 
ation), which he served as Secretary-Treasurer, 1925-1935. Associational records indicate that 
he probably had been in attendance at more annual meetings of the association than any 
other individual living within the bounds of the West Chowan. 

"Mr. Will" had a great love for Chowan College — the alma mater of his mother and his 
sisters, and the institution which his father had served as trustee for 33 years. His immediate 
service to the college included two four-year terms as a member of the Board of Trustees, 
1955-1958 and 1961-1964; three years of service on the Executive Committee of the Board, 
1956, 1957, and 1963; and six years as Treasurer of the Board, 1956-1959, 1962, and 1963. 

The legacy of "Mr. Will" thomas lives on in the lives of countless men, women, and children 
of the Roanoke-Chowan region who have been touched by his life and blessed by his labors.

REPORT OF THE GENERAL BOARD 



The General Board of the West Chowan Baptist Association met once in each quarter dur- 
mg the 1974-75 Associational Year. 

In the first meeting, the following officers of the Board were elected: 
Robert B. Spivey, Chairman 
Harold Rumfelt, Vice-Chairman 
Ron Richardson, Secretary 
Members to serve at large on the Executive Committee from the General Board were: Walter 
Jones, Northampton County; A. Ray Lassiter, Hertford County; and Bob Traywick, Bertie 
County. 

The Board voted to have the Committee on the Constitution to make the following amend- 
ments and changes in the Constitution: 

(1) that each church be allowed to elect an alternate lay member to the General Board. 

(2) under Article 23, Section C, add a new committee to be known as the Pastor-Church 
Relationship Committee. 

(3) that the Constitution Section dealing with committees and their duties be reviewed in 
regards to clarification of wording. 

The General Board authorized the renting of a building in Ahoskie for one year to serve as 
the Associational Office. 

The members of the committees of the General Board for the year were appointed. 

The new Director of Associational Work, the Reverend Henry Powell, was presented to the 
Board, and he made brief remarks concerning plans for the Associational Bulletin and other 
work for the year. 

The second meeting was held on March 24, 1975, and reports were heard from the General 
Board Committees. 

The Committee on Missions reported that the Rich Square Migrant Mission Project was hav- 
ing approximately 40 people per Sunday in Sunday School with 60 to 75 attending morning 
worship services. It was reported that 10 decisions had been made, and that invitations were 
being issued to any of the church groups who would like to lead an evening worship service. 

Committee on Christian Life and Public Affairs reported Plans for the possibility of having a 
workshop in the fall on personal integrity. 

Committee on Education and Promotion suggested that churches ^ive consideration to a 

14 



bus ministry and a visitation program as a way of increasing church membership. It also sug- 
gested lay evangelism as a way of getting lay persons involved in a witnessing program. 

Committee on Finance and Stewardship gave a budget report, and the use of an expense re- 
quisition form was discussed by the Board. 

The Committee on Evangelism reported that the Baptist State Convention was encouraging 
simultaneous revivals in 1976. This is to be discussed further at the next meeting. 

The Board was reminded of the World Missions Conference to be held in 1976. 

The third meeting was held on July 14, 1975, and reports were heard from the various com- 
mittees which indicated their continued working efforts to promote the associational pro- 
gram. 

The Finance and Stewardship Committee presented the proposed budget for 1975-76, and it 
was approved after minor changes, calling for a total budget of $21,925.08. It was noted that 
our present budget was running about 3 months behind in its support from the churches, and 
as of this date support for Associational Missions had been received from 54 of the Associ- 
ation's 60 churches. It was again pointed out that if the churches would adopt 2% of the 
church budget for allocation to the Association, then our budget would be met without any 
problem. It was also noted that the budget represented approximately $1.75 per individual 
church member. 

A motion was made and passed recommending that August 17-23 be designated as a Week 
of Prayer for Associational Missions, that a special offering be received for the Associational 
Misyons during this week. 

The Board voted to have the six-day World Missions Conference to be scheduled March 
21-26 with all participating at the same time. It was also voted and approved that the cost of 
the World Missions Conference appear as a line item on the budget for 1975-76. 

A committee was appointed to study the housing situation and make recommendations to 
the General Board as the best way to house the Associational Director. 

The Survey and Study Committee recommended to the General Board that the Association 
conduct a self-study. After full discussion, a motion was adopted that a self-study be con- 
ducted with a preliminary report to be given at the annual meeting in October. 

The fourth meeting of the General Board was held on September 29. 

A report from the Missions Committee was given concerning completion of the first phase 
of work on the Rich Square Migrant Project and the need to embark on a new phase which 
would provide for a weekend minister who would direct and lead the missions program. It 
was reported that the Association would need to raise approximately $50.00 per week to sup- 
port this program with other support coming from the Baptist State Convention. The Missions 
Committee was asked to meet and recommend a plan to the Association, whereby the needs 
of the project might be met. 

The Executive Committee of the General Board met 6 times during the year, and a true spirit 
of cooperation was experienced by all involved with continued emphasis on working 
together for the glory of God's kingdom. 



12. Moderator recognized John Chamlee, Associational Treasurer, for his report. The 
following report of the Treasurer was adopted:

14. Bob Traywick, Chairman of the Missions Committee, asked Mrs. Henry Powell to come 
and present the work done at the Migrant Mission during Vacation Bible School. She reported 
that about 50 children and young people were enrolled. Mrs. Jack Morgan and Mrs. Britton 
from Lasker also assisted during this week of activities. Mr. Traywick presented the following 
report of the Missions Committee which was adopted. He also presented some recommenda- 
tions to further the work of the Migrant Mission. These recommendations were adopted and 
are presented below. 

REPORT OF THE 
MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

The concern of the Missions Committee this past year has been primarily with the Rich 
Square Migrant Mission Work. Since last year at this time, the Mobile Chapel has been dedi- 
cated. Corbin Cooper from the Baptist State Convention spoke, and we had special music 



17 



from several different churches. Equipment has been bought, seventy-five steel chairs were 
purchased by the black churches in the area, a piano was given by another, and pulpit fur- 
niture was given by others. As far as we know the physical necessities have been met at the 
Mission. 

Some good work has been done on a voluntary basis, Sunday School has been established, 
worship services, Bible School, and a summer worker. But the time has come for our Associ- 
ation to think in terms of a more permanent ministry at the Mobile Chapel. 

All in all, the work has progressed as well as could be expected. But we are aware of the fact 
that we cannot go on indefinitely, depending on a ministry that is voluntary. We believe that 
now is the time to establish some permanent type ministry at the Mission. It will require the 
help of all the churches, working with our State Convention to establish this type work. Our 
Association has never dodged a challenge, especially in the field of missions. We are confi- 
dent that you will not dodge this challenge. 

Respectfully submitted, 
B. j. Traywick, Chairman 
Missions Committee 

RECOMMENDATION CONCERNING WORK WITH MIGRANT 
TRAINING CENTER AT RICH SQUARE 

Explanation: 

The Association purchased a trailer with contributions from the churches and set up a place 
for worship and Bible Study. The Missions Committee has been reporting on the work and has 
brought the following recommendations. 

The general plan was approved by the General Board of the West Chowan Association 
meeting at Creech Memorial Church, September 29, 1975. The Executive Committee reviewed 
the plan for the continuation of the work that was suggested by the Missions Committee. 
Thus, the General Board, Missions Committee, and the Executive Committee have reviewed 
this basic procedure. 

Recommendation No. 1 

That the Association take serious thought of this missions endeavor to reach the population 
of the Migrant Training Center for Christ and determine to pray and support the ministry. 
Recommendation No. 2 

That the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina is very interested in a joint ministry at 
Rich Square and challenges the Association. The Convention has offered to more than match 
our share in providing a worker in the Rich Square Migrant Training Center. We recommend 
we enter into this cooperative ministry with our prayers and support. 

Recommendation No. 3 

That we enter into agreement with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and Mr. 
Theodore Myrick for this ministry. Mr. Myrick is a retired Navy man (31 Years). He has worked 
in Hyde County for the Baptist State Convention with migrant workers. His qualifications and 
attitude prepare him for this ministry in Rich Square. 

Recommendation No. 4 

That we give from $3-$5 per month per church to keep this ministry going for Christ. That 
each church give the regular contribution to the Associational causes and make this special 
effort of cooperative missions on an Associational level prosper. That the amount of $2400 be 
included in the 1976 budget of the Association for this ministry. 

We move that the West Chowan Association of churches enter into a cooperative ministry 
with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and with Mr. Theodore Myrick to minis- 
ter to the needs of the Migrant Training Center in Rich Square. 
That we further agree to give from $3-$5 per month per church to accomplish this work.

That the amount of $2400 be included in the budget of the West Chowan Association for 
1976. 

15. Vincent Young, Associational Sunday School Director, present the following report 
which was adopted. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

in the past year the Associational Sunday School Department provided the following helps 
for our churches: 

SUNDAY SCHOOL EMPHASIS 1974-1975: Our Sunday School Directors and Pastors were 
encouraged to attend an Associational Sunday School Emphasis Meeting, for the new Sunday 
School year. This meeting enabled us to promote and encourage the Sunday School workers 
of our churches to attend the various related meetings and clinics. 

HIGH ATTENDANCE DAY: In November we participated in the first Convention promoted 
High Attendance Day. All of our churches responded to this effort, and on that Sunday our at- 
tendance reached an all time high. 

ADULT EMPHASIS CLINICS: There were 3 clinics held for the purpose of emphasizing 
Adult Work in our Sunday Schools. These clinics were held in February at the following 
churches: Ahoskie, First; Askewville; Conway. 

TASTOR-DIRECTOR CLINICS: There were 3 Pastor-Director Clinics held this year. This gave 
the pastors and their Sunday School Directors an opportunity to sit down together and set 
their goals and work their plans for their Sunday Schools. The clinics were held in August at 
the Ross, Ahoskie, and Conway churches. 

VBS CLINICS: January brought the familiar trip to Wingate for our Associational VBS 
workers. We had a full team of workers to attend. In February a Mini-Clinic was held for the 
VBS Directors of each church. The purpose of this meeting was to preview the new materials 
and to encourage greater participation in the Associational VBS Clinics. Our 2 Associational 
VBS Clinics were scheduled as they were the year before, with the morning-afternoon clinic at 
Colerain Baptist Church, and the afternoon-evening clinic at Meherrin. 

1975-1976 PLANS: Our Association will be providing a Teacher Improvement Clinic later in 
1976. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Vincent Young, Director 



16. A motion was made and adopted that the Resolutions Committee draft a proper resolu- 
tion concerning the work of Billy Mobley as he has served as President of the General Board of 
the Baptist State Convention in leading North Carolina Baptists in the facing of crucial issues. 

17. Mrs. William G. Lawrence, Jr., Music Director for the Association, presented the follow- 
ing report which was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT 

Christians continually search for ways to express their praise and thanks to Almighty God. 
What better way can we do this than through music as we sing great hymns of faith and listen 
to instrumental meditations. 

Church music in the West Chowan Association has grown, improved, and gained strength 
during the last several years. The number of people involved in church music leadership and 
choirs continues to grow. 

This year a survey was made to determine the interest in organizing an Associational Youth 
Choir and in having a church music leadership workshop directed by our state music leader- 
ship staff. Not enough interest was indicated to merit the organization of the Associational 
Youth Choir. A music leadership workshop is being planned for the winter of 1976. We urge 
churches to take advantage of this opportunity for musical growth. 



19 



The music department expresses its gratitude for your support and cooperation. Please call 
on us for any assistance, information, or suggestions you may need. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. William G. Lawrence, Jr. 
Director 

18. A motion was made by Harold Rumfelt that the Report of the General Board as read and 
presented be adopted in its entirety. The motion was adopted. Report from other committees 
of the General Board were presented and adopted. These reports follow. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON EVANGELISM 

The highlight of the Committee on Evangelism came during the week of October 27-30, 
1974. The Reverend Bill Lamb, Director of Evangelism for the Baptist State Convention, came 
to our association to lead us in a School of Lay Evangelism. We had a good response from our 
churches with 121 attending this school. 

Perhaps the most exciting evening of the study was on October 30, when all the school 
members were encouraged to go out and visit the local homes where there were lost people. 
After the visits we met at the First Baptist Church, Ahoskie, and each team shared their ex- 
periences of witnessing. To me, this was the most meaningful event. 

During the Executive Committee meeting in July, 1975, we recommended that the Evangel- 
ism Committee implement in any way possible the Schools of Missions to be held in our As- 
sociation March 21-26, 1976. It is our desire that we may be able to help the Schools of Mis- 
sions and at the same time promote EVANGELISM (the winning of the lost to Chhst). Several 
churches have indicated that this meeting will take the place of their Spring Revival. If this is 
to be done, we want to encourage each Pastor to make all the spiritual preparation possible 
so that it might become an opportunity. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter S. Jones, Chairman 
Committee of Evangelism 

CHURCH TRAINING AND MINISTRIES 

(Church the Sunday Night Place) 

This year has been a year with very few activities in Church Training in the West Chowan 
Association. There are only 7 churches reporting any type of Training last year. 

This is not a true picture of the Church Training Program that is going on in our churches. 
We hope that the message can be carried across our Association to our churches that a 
Church Training Program includes those training periods, which the churches are doing other 
than the regular Sunday night "On-going" Training Union. We believe that many of our 
churches are doing some special types of training, but are failing to report it in the Church Let- 
ters. We urge you to rethink your Church Training Program. Let us help you! 

We are looking toward an exciting year with a Deacons Retreat in February for all our 
deacons. There are plans being made for a non-night Church Committees and General Of- 
ficers Workshop in September. Yes, it is exciting to think how we shall advance together in a 
more effective Christian witness in our churches and Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
' Walter F. Hill, Director 

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

Conway Church was hostess to our second annual fellowship for the pastors and their 
wives, the church WMU Directors and their husbands on February 7, 1975. We feel that a 



20 



good working relationship is necessary between theWMU and the pastor. This year instead of 
a speaker, we just had a friendly social. 

At our 81st Annual Associational WMU Meeting held at Creech Memorial on April 3, we 
were privileged to hear Mrs. Edwin Dozier, recently retired missionary to Japan. We were also 
fortunate to have Miss Nancy Curtis, our State BYW Leader to speak to a crowd of over 200. 
The Pastors and Church WMU Directors were given special recognition at this meeting. 

The WMU Council met 5 times during the year. Some of the council attended our annual 
session in Charlotte, SBC Meeting in Miami Beach, WMU Week at Ridgecrest and all but one 
member attended the Workshop at Mundo Vista. 

Again we had a chartered bus for the annual session in Charlotte. Twenty-four went by bus 
and 6 traveled by car. Galatia Church was hostess to an Associational Leadership Manual 
Study on January 24 with approximately 80 in attendance. 

The Workshop was held at Severn Church, September 19 with 99 present. 

Our WMU emphasis for 1975-76 is "a tempo". The tempo has really picked up in our Baptist 
Young Women. Seven new BYW organizations were organized this year giving us a total of 26 
groups. "A tempo" is an emphasis on BYW. 

Big plans are in the making for our 82nd Annual Meeting with the Cashie Church on April 1, 
1976. A history is being up-dated and we hope to celebrate the Bicentennial of our country at 
this meeting. 

Again our Association was recognized as "distinguished". This is our 4th consecutive year 
for this grading, and we are proud of the work that we have accomplished. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Walter S. Jones 
Director

BRIEF HISTORY OF COLERAIN BAPTIST CHURCH 

A group of faithful meeting as early as 1757 met at WICCACON near Colerain. Historians 
have suggested two different dates as beginning dates for the Colerain Baptist Church. The old 
folks, aware of the WICCACON work and the move to The Town of Colerain, were so con- 
vinced about the date that they installed stained glass windows with the date 1780 on the 
entrance of this main building (this building begun 1908 and completed 1911). The WIC- 
CACON CHURCH was a branch of Cashie for a period of time. The leadership of Elder 
Jeremiah Dargon and Cashie was clear during the period of 1780-1786. The date 1789 (which 
has been used often as beginning of Colerain) is the date that Cashie stopped shepherding the 
work. The WICCACON CHURCH changed the name to Colerain Baptist Church and moved 
closer to the town of Colerain. So 1780 is correct and 1789 is also correct. The Kehukee Asso- 
ciation met with the WICCACON CHURCH in 1786. 

Some records show Joshua Freeman being converted and joining in 1777 while it was lo- 
cated about 4 miles northwest of Colerain. Soon the congregation moved to new location just 



22 



outside of Colerain on site now occupied by the First Baptist Church (Black). The congrega- 
tion built complete facilities in 1849 with Rev. Abram jones of Edenton preaching the 
dedicatory sermon. 

In 1883 the first tract of land at the present site was bought and a house of worship was 
built and dedicated in 1892. Elder C. W. Scarborough preached the sermon. The West 
Chowan Association met with Colerain Church in 1893. The present building began with cor- 
nerstone laying in 1908 and the Church House was completed, paid for and dedicated in June 
1911. A former pastor, Elder M. P. Davis, preached the sermon. He had led the church in the 
planning of the building while pastor. 

In 1925 the church invited Mr. E. L. Middleton of the Sunday School Department of Baptist 
State Convention of N. C. to come to Colerain and draw up plans for a modern up-to-date 
Sunday School plant. The proposals were accepted and the plant was erected by the end of 
the year. The Sunday School at Colerain was the first departmental Sunday School in the West 
Chowan Association. 

The Church has kept remodeling the heating and lighting as new types appeared on the 
market. 

In 1948, a modern home to house the pastor was erected on a lot across from the church. In 
the early 1950's the church expanded the facilities with an educational building having several 
departments, a fellowship hall and kitchen. This was paid in full within five years. A treasured 
set of chimes was given in memory of Mr. & Mrs. Lee Brinkley by Mrs. Jennie Mae Davis and 
Mrs. Carolyn Eure. 

Extensive Renovation was begun in 1967. This included painting inside and out and 
remodeling Altar area with pulpit furniture (as memorial to William E. "Bill" White by family 
and friends). The beautiful lighting was given in memory of Clarence Wood Beasley by Mrs. 
Beasley and Wood. 

In 1968, the Church purchased the Lawrence Property (adjoining on the North) and it was 
developed into parking and two tennis courts which have been completed and are now a joy 
to many. 

In 1972, a completely new central heating and air conditioning system was installed in the 
main building. 

The Colerain Baptist Church story is built around great people and good leaders. We in- 
clude this list of pastors.

Some thoughts on the immediate past — since 1963. 

The church added a church secretary in the newly arranged facilities of office space and 
pastor's study in the Fellowship Building. This was in 1963. The Stewardship and program of 



23 



Church Finance was given serious study and a real effort to combine challenge and freedonn 
in giving was established with emphasis on Cooperative Program and designations (Privilege) 
to institutions and agencies. 

Since Easter 1964, the congregation has enjoyed a great Easter Sunrise Service at Colerain 
Beach. Other church leaders in the community have participated in this program also. This 
has been a blessing to many. 

The music program prior to 1961 was capably led by Cora Felton Bass as Organist-Director. 
One lady and two men have served the church as Minister of Music. 
Elaine Evans — 1961 

Norman Coggins — March 1964 to May 1966 
Robert G. Mulder, Jr. — June 1966 to present time. 
Robert G. Mulder, Jr., Minister of Music since 1966, has written several books and has articles 
on music and varied topics in many Baptist publications. Articles and poems have appeared in 
Church Musician, Home Life, Discovery, etc. 

Our minister, Bennie E. Pledger, has served since 1963. He has a care about the church in 
cooperation with other churches in the Community, Association and Convention. He has 
served in different capacities: 

1966-70: Trustee, Chowan College 

1971-74: General Board, Baptist State Convention 

1970: Program Committee, Baptist State Convention 

Since 1973: Cooperative Program Consultant, Region I, N. C. 

1971-74: Christian Life Council, Baptist State Convention — and other tasks in this Associ- 
ation. 

The Challenge '75 Program of the Church invites involvment of the members in attendance, 
giving, and personal growth. Many opportunities have been developing where individuals 
share the growing spirit of Christ. 

A look back reminds us of the strict discipline of the congregation up to the early 40's. 
Members were dismissed for different items but a sure way to be dismissed was to miss the 
Saturday Business Conference. Churches are in need of discipline somewhere between this 
past and the present. 

This is a brief history. The church stands on this hallowed ground and demands the very 
best of the membership in the name of Christ in present and future. 

Note: The Church will have a complete history written and printed in the next few years — a 
200 yr. History (1780-1980). 

29. Bob Traywick, Chairman of Committee on Committees, read its report and these were 
duly elected. 

30. Jack Morgan a member of the Committee on Committees presented the following mo- 
tion which was approved. 

The Committee on Committees recommends that the History Committee be designated as 
a Special Bicentennial Committee for 1976 to make suggestions as to how can best observe 
the Bicentennial either to the Executive Committee or to the General Board. 

31. Bennie Pledger, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, gave its report. The slate of 
officers were elected. 

32. The report of the Committee on the Constitution was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE CONSTITUTION 

The Constitution Committee has had a relatively inactive year. The Committee has received 
no suggestions or proposals for consideration. 

However, we feel the constitution needs some careful study and possible revision in certain 
areas in order that it remain strong and viable during these troubled times. The Committee is 
somewhat hesitant to undertake this task prior to the completion of the work of the Survey- 
Study Committee. We feel this Committee has a better overall view of the aims and objectives 
of the Association and its recommendations and suggestions could possibly be more ap- 



24 



propariate than those of our committee. 

We strongly recommend that future members of the Committee on the Constitution give 
prayerful and serious consideration to the recommendations of the Survey-Study Committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William T. Charles, Chairman 

33. Lemar Wheeler, Chairman of the Survey-Study Committee, gave its report. The follow- 
ing report was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE SURVEY-STUDY COMMITTEE 

A Survey-Study Committee was appointed from the General Board of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association composed of 15 members, 8 laymen and 7 pastors, from over the Associ- 
ation to study materials from the Home Mission Board. These materials consisted of 2 
booklets: "Associational Strategy Planning Guide", and "Guide For Associational Self-Study". 
Mr. Henry Powell presented this material to the Committee, focusing our attention on the 
study in 4 areas: 1. Community Welfare and Social Service; 2. Courts and Police; 3. Physical 
facilities of our area; and 4. Present trends of our Association from the Church Statistical data 
as recorded in the Associational Minutes. 

These 4 areas were presented to the General Board of our Association with the recommen- 
dation that a study be made in these 4 areas of our Association. The recommendation was ac- 
cepted and passed on by the General Board. 

Since that time the Survey-Study Committee has appointed a committee to make the study. 
The Committee is composed of men of our Association who are in position to make the study 
and secure first-hand the information needed in the 4 strategic areas being studied. 

The basic purpose of this Self-Study is to learn: 1. What the people of our area need from 
the churches; 2. What the churches need in order to meet the needs of the people; 3. What 
resources the churches have for meeting these needs; 4. What other resources are available in 
the community to help them. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. Lamar Wheeler, Chairman 



34. Henry Powell presented the Calendar of Activities as printed in the Book of Reports and 
asked that it be adopted with any necessary changes that may need to be made.

ASSOCIATIONAL DIRECTOR'S REPORT 

it was 10 months, 1 week, and 4 days ago that I arrived on the field to begin my work as your 
Director of Associational Work. These first few months have been very busy ones for me — for 
which I am grateful. I hope the days, weeks, and months ahead will be even busier. Let me re- 
mind you again that the little red "date-book" is open for you to fill it as you call upon me to 
teach, preach, speak, serve in any and every way that I can. I am depending on you to keep my 
appointment book full and running over at all times. 

I had hoped that I could report to you today that I have been in all 60 churches; but it has 
proved to be impossible. There are not enough Sunday mornings. I have been in 52 of the 60 
churches. When I say that I have been in, or visited a church, I am referring to a regularly 
scheduled public service — Sundays, Revival, etc. In 11 of the 52 churches I visited only; in the 
other 42 I was there to speak or have some part in the service. 

In these services I have preached (Sunday worship services, special occasions such as or- 
dination or dedication services. Revivals); taught (Sunday School class, January Bible Study, 
Adult VBS Study in Revelation); spoken at Mid-Week Prayer services as well as other special 
occasions. 

I have worked with the Associational Officers, Committees, and Organizations in project- 
ing and promoting the various phases of the Associational program. This has involved many 
individual, group, committee meetings and conferences. 



29 



I have been out of the Association 4 Sundays this first year: 2 of these were on the trip to 
Miami for the meeting of the SBC; 1 for the daughter's graduation at Mars Hill College; the 4th 
to participate in the Deacon Ordination Service of our son in Greensboro. I was away 3 weeks 
m addition to the trip to Miami for the SBC— 2 weeks serving on the faculty at Caswell, 1 week 
at Fruitland for the State Associational Missionaries Conference. 

Again may I express to you my gratitude for the privilege you have given me of serving as 
your Director of Associational Work. My only hope is that I may be found faithful in the task 
that you have entrusted to me. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry Powell, Director

54. Mr. Jim Mason read the history of the Harrellsville Baptist Church. 

HISTORY OF THE HARRELLSVILLE BAPTIST CHURCH 

From 1811, or earlier, this small village had the Christian influence of a Methodist Church. 
The nearest Baptist stronghold was Bethlehem Church, established in 1835. There were those 
in the village who attended and were members of Bethlehem, Colerain, Ahoskie, and Mars 
Hill churches. By 1875 the need had arisen for a meeting place in Harrellsville for those of the 
Baptist faith. Harrellsville Baptist Church was organized in that year with a small group of 
villagers and a small group from Bethlehem Church, joining them were a few members from 
Ahoskie and Mars Hill churches and a few members from the Mill Neck section of the town- 
ship. Among the charter members, these names have survived: Mr. Hillary Taylor; Mr. William 
Downing; Captain and Mrs. Norman L. Shaw; Mrs. N. j. Harrell; Mr. Sumner D. Newsome; 
Mr. H. Q. Holloman; Mr. james M. Powell; Mrs. Agnes Sharp Askew; and a Mrs. Copeland. 

The first meeting was held in the old Union Male Academy building. Soon a building was 
erected on property bought by the church, (our present parking lot). This first meeting house 
was a small 'A' roof building with seats on either side of a center aisle. This building proved 
adequate until 1913. During 1913 and 1914 the building was repaired and enlarged. At this 
time a baptistry was installed; two wings were added, one on each side of the pulpit; one Sun- 
day School room was added across the back; and four entrance doors were added, two on 
each side of the sanctuary. 

The roster of pastors, many shared with other churches of the Association, is one of the best 
to be had in the Chowan and West Chowan Associations. The following have served the con- 
gregation over the past one hundred years: T. G. Wood, 1883-1885; D. A. Woodson, 
1885-1887; L. R. Pruitt, 1887-1890; C. N. Donaldson, 1890-1892; B. Craig, 1892-1897; j. K. Fant, 
1897-1899; j. A. Speight, 1899-1906; M. P. Davis, 1906-1910; F. A. Clark, 1910-1912; C. P. Scott, 
1912-1913; H. F. Brinson, 1913-1914; H. H. Honeycutt, 1914-1916; R. B. Lineberry, 1916-1922; T. 



30 



E. Walters, 1922-1925; R. B. Lineberry, 1926-1934; R. R. jackson, 1935-1943; W. C. Francis, 
1944-1945; T. J. Fulk, 1945-1949; L. j. Rainey, 1949-1953; J. M. Long, 1954-1%0; B. J. Traywick, 
1961-1967; W. L. Downs, 1967-present. 

Recognizing the true worth of all active mennbers and their contribution to the Christian in- 
fluence of this church, we should make note of four members who were ordained ministers. 
David Gilliland, ordained in Maryland in 1871, joined Harrellsville Baptist Church about 1884 
and remained a member until his death, August 1910. Wade Baker was ordained while a mem- 
ber of this church. Our present pastor, William L. Downs, was ordained by this church after 
he began his ministry here in 1967. Edward Sharp was baptized into the fellowship of our 
church September 1936 and remained a member until july 1949. Having committed his life to 
Christian service in this church, he became an Episcopal minister and today serves Christ 
Episcopal Church in New Bern. 

The years have brought changing patterns into the life of the church. A few stand out 
among the rest. The 1940 budget was noteworthy with a total of $2000; $1000 set aside for pas- 
tor's salary and local expenses and $1000 for missions and benevolences. The following year, 
1941, a unified budget was adopted. In April 1940 a building fund was begun and on March 
11, 1951 the new church building was dedicated debt free. Upon completion of this building 
the spiritual life of the church was further lifted during a week of revival services, March 25 
through April 1 of that same year. The library was established in 1955 and an organ purchased 
in 1958. By January 14, 1962 a new education building had been added. On December 29, 
1967, the church was honored to receive notice of a gift from the Grady D. Askew Trust Fund. 
The yearly dividends from this gift are shared equally with two other institutions in Hertford 
County. 

There have been two noteworthy attributes in the life history of the church; the strong mis- 
sionary spirit that has existed throughout the one hundred years, and the constant friendly 
relationship between this church and the United Methodist Church, the only other 
denomination in the village. With appreciation for the personal sacrifices and Christian wit- 
ness of those who have made this one hundred years of church history — we look forward 
with renewed vision and faith. 

55. William L. Downs, Chairman of the Committee on Ordinations, presented the follow- 
ing report which was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON ORDINATIONS 

The Committee on Ordinations, at the request of the Crestview Baptist Mission of Dunn, 
North Carolina, was convened at the Aulander Church on Saturday, December 7, 1974, for the 
purpose of the examination of Brother Charles Clay, a student at Campbell College and former 
youth director of the Aulander Church. After the examination a recommendation to ordain 
Brother Clay was made to the Aulander Church and he was ordained by them on Sunday 
morning, December 8, 1974. 

On Monday, July 21, 1975, at the request of the Ahoskie First Baptist Church, the Committee 
on Ordinations was convened at the Ahoskie Church for the examination of Brother Calvin 
"Robbie" W. Parker, Jr. Brother Parker was a recent graduate of Southern Baptist Theological 
Seminary, and had been called to his home church as an assistant pastor. Following the ex- 
amination a recommendation to ordain Brother Parker was made to the Ahoskie Church and 
he was ordained by them on Sunday evening, August 3, 1975. 

This report is respectfully submitted by the Committee on Ordinations, 

William L. Downs, Chairman 
D. H. McCollough

tors for a total enrollment of 210.

REPORT ON CHOWAN COLLEGE 



Chowan College began her 128th acadennic year as an institution of Christian higher educa- 
tion on August 21-23, 1975, with the annual Faculty Workshop prior to the arrival of fresh- 
men/transfer students on August 24. Featured speaker for the Workshop was the Reverend 
James Y. Greene, Director, Department of Campus Ministry, Baptist State Convention of 
North Carolina. While the Board of Trustees of the College had authorized budget/ personnel 
projections to provide for a minimum enrollment of 900 for the fall semester, actual enroll- 
ment figures are well in excess of this minimal projection. The enrollment of Full Time 
Equivalency students is 1,015 — six more than were enrolled at the beginning of the fall 
semester, 1974. 

Of major significance in terms of capital improvements during the past year was the 
thorough renovation of the college's chapel-auditorium, housed in the south wing to the 
historic McDowell Columns building. Begun in December 1974 at a projected cost of $120,- 
000, the renovated chapel-auditorium was ready for use at the first regularly scheduled chapel 
service of the current academic year, September 1, 1975. Renovation features include the 
replacing of the original wooden seats with cushioned, opera-type chairs; new carpeting; new 
ceiling and lighting fixtures; heating and air conditioning system; new audio system; new 
entrances/exits at both main floor and balcony levels; new stage curtain; and the provision of 
more adequate dressing room facilities for purposes of dramatic productions and/or concert 
performances. This renovation of the chapel-auditorium marks another stage in the efforts to 
"up-grade" and maintain the McDowell Columns as both a functional facility as well as a 
campus landmark. 

Chowan College continues to be proud of her historic affiliation with and relationship to 
the churches of the West Chowan Baptist Association. As a Christian colllege, a vital facet of 
her curricular and co-curricular program involves learning about and giving expression to 
one's faith and heritage. The college continues to require six semester hours of religion studies 
for all students who complete requirements for a degree or diploma. The weekly chapel-as- 
sembly series is attended by all full-time students. Encouragement is given to participation in 
the Baptist Student Union-Campus Christian Fellowship, in other religiously oriented curricu- 
lar and co-curricular programming, and in the churches in the college and/or home com- 
munities of the students. 

Through the joint efforts of the Baptist Student Union-Campus Christian Fellowship and the 
Chowan College Ministerial Alliance, students conducted revival emphases in 15 churches 
throughout the past year. Many of the same students — along with others — were also involved 
in ministries to the elderly, to maintenance staff personnel on campus, to fellow students, and 
to the Roanoke-Chowan region through a radio devotional ministry. These same students an- 
ticipate a continuation of these forms of ministry in 1975-76, along with the enlistment of ad- 
ditional fellow students towards the same ends. The entire campus community invites the 
churches of the West Chowan Baptist Association to call upon the college personnel for any 
services we may be able to render in the name of Christ.
